  • 27. 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.)
  • 28. 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
