    • Quiz #1 (take home, due Friday)
      • 3 simple questions:
      • Who are you? (name, year, major)
      • What do you hope to learn in Geology 110?
      • Where is home?
      • (This could be where you were born, where you were raised, where you live now, where your folks live... Whatever feels most like home to you.)
    • Quiz #1 (take home, due Friday)
      • 1 question that requires a tiny amount of effort:
      • What are the coordinates of home in latitude and longitude?
      • I grew up in Jackson, WY, USA, so I would say:
      • Decimal degrees: 43.472° N, 110.771° W
      • or
      • Degrees, minutes, seconds: 43°28′19″ N, 110°46′16″ W
