In this course, students explore the planet Earth, its history, and the physical processes that continue to shape it. Major topics include the Earth’s origins and geologic time; plate tectonics, mountains and seismology; the formation of rocks and minerals; volcanism; weathering and erosion; glaciers, deserts, beaches, and the ocean floor; rivers, floods and groundwater; and fossils and their relationship to Earth’s past. Students will deepen their understanding and hone their scientific problem-solving through participation in hands-on labs, group projects, virtual field trips and (where practical) on-site experiences.
