This course is designed to teach analytical thinking in geology
using computing applications. As such, it is intended to satisfy
the University's General Studies Core area Numeracy N3
requirement. The modular approach permits the course to focus
on different earth science problems varying from hardware and
data input/output, Internet applications, 3D visualization, simulation,
and presentation of results. At the end of the course, the students
are expected to be able to solve geological problems using computers.
Therefore, they should be familiar with the Macintosh, PC, and
UNIX operating systems, typical software applications, and the
basic programming tools of the Internet, visualization, and simulation.
We will take advantage of the opportunity to use the new computer
systems recently installed in the Geology Instructional Computing
The 3 credit hour course consists of two days of 65 minute lectures
and opportunities for students to work through module exercises.
Grades are 60% lab and homework exercises and 40% for a project
presented publicly in a final poster session.
