Exploring Geology

Author: Stephen Reynolds
Publisher: McGraw-Hill Higher Education
ISBN: 9781259292910
Release Date: 2015-01-09
Genre: Science

Exploring Geology by Reynolds/Johnson/ Morin/Carter is an innovative textbook intended for an introductory college geology course, such as Physical Geology. This ground-breaking, visually spectacular book was designed from cognitive and educational research on how students think, learn, and study. Nearly all information in the book is built around 2,600 photographs and stunning illustrations, rather than being in long blocks of text that are not articulated with figures. These annotated illustrations help students visualize geologic processes and concepts, and are suited to the way most instructors already teach. To alleviate cognitive load and help students focus on one important geologic process or concept at a time, the book consists entirely of two-page spreads organized into 19 chapters. Each two-page spread is a self-contained block of information about a specific topic, emphasizing geologic concepts, processes, features, and approaches. These spreads help students learn and organize geologic knowledge in a new and exciting way. Inquiry is embedded throughout the book, modeling how geologists investigate problems. The title of each two-page spread and topic heading is a question intended to get readers to think about the topic and become interested and motivated to explore the two-page spread for answers. Each chapter is a learning cycle, which begins with a visually engaging two-page spread about a compelling geologic issue. Each chapter ends with an Investigation that challenges students with a problem associated with a virtual place. The world-class media, spectacular presentations, and assessments are all tightly articulated with the textbook. This book is designed to encourage students to observe, interpret, think critically, and engage in authentic inquiry, and is highly acclaimed by reviewers, instructors, and students.

The Changing Earth Exploring Geology and Evolution

Author: James Monroe
Publisher: Cengage Learning
ISBN: 9781285733418
Release Date: 2014-01-01
Genre: Science

THE CHANGING EARTH: EXPLORING GEOLOGY AND EVOLUTION, Seventh Edition, is a member of a rare breed of texts written specifically for courses covering both physical and historical geology. Three interrelated themes (plate tectonics, organic evolution, and geologic time) help students understand that Earth is a complex, integrated, and continually changing system. In the new edition authors James S. Monroe and Reed Wicander integrate new content emphasizing the economic impacts of geology. Topics such as fracking, nuclear waste, and the threat of earthquakes are covered in new Geo-Impact boxes that stress real-world applications. Lauded for their clear writing style, the authors go beyond simply explaining geology and its processes; rather, they place that knowledge within the context of human experience by consistently emphasizing relevance, resources, and the environment. New Global Geoscience Watch activities help students learn how to use an extensive database of articles on geology that are updated several times a day and are available exclusively for users of this book.

Laboratory Manual for Introductory Circuit Analysis

Author: Robert L. Boylestad
Publisher: Prentice Hall
ISBN: 0133923789
Release Date: 2015-07-09
Genre: Technology & Engineering

The primary objectives of this revision of the laboratory manual include insuring that the procedures are clear, that the results clearly support the theory, and that the laboratory experience results in a level of confidence in the use of the testing equipment commonly found in the industrial environment. For those curriculums devoted to a dc analysis one semester and an ac analysis the following semester there are more experiments for each subject than can be covered in a single semester. The result is the opportunity to pick and choose those experiments that are more closely related to the curriculum of the college or university. All of the experiments have been run and tested during the 13 editions of the text with changes made as needed. The result is a set of laboratory experiments that should have each step clearly defined and results that closely match the theoretical solutions. Two experiments were added to the ac section to provide the opportunity to make measurements that were not included in the original set. Developed by Professor David Krispinsky of Rochester Institute of Technology they match the same format of the current laboratory experiments and cover the material clearly and concisely. All the experiments are designed to be completed in a two or three hour laboratory session. In most cases, the write-up is work to be completed between laboratory sessions. Most institutions begin the laboratory session with a brief introduction to the theory to be substantiated and the use of any new equipment to be used in the session.
