Course Schedule: GEOG130-Y1
Environmental Geography Web Course ~~ Fall 2006
Dr. James Hayes-Bohanan
VERSION: November 12, 2006 -- UPDATED
This schedule has been revised because Chapter 7 was not adequately covered prior to the Second Chalkboard session. See changes below. Meeting times are not changed - just the timing of our discussions.

This is an 80/20 class. It will meet only on the dates indicated, but students are strongly encouraged to meet individually with the professor as often as the need may arise. This is especially true during the first two weeks of class. Do not wait to get help!

The course has been designed to minimize on-campus time requirements, but to make maximum use of the time that is spent on campus. For this reason, it is imperative to attend all of the sessions indicated below. If you have prior plans that conflict with ANY of the scheduled meetings, I recommend that you do not take the course at this time.

Review sessions cover all material for the upcoming exam. No new chapters are covered during the weeks exams are given.

The work in this class follows a weekly rhythm, according to the chapter numbers of the text book. Note that some chapters are not included. The work schedule below indicates each week by the Monday date. Within each week, work must be done as follows:

This means two things are "due" at the same time. If this does not work for you, figure out which one you would like to complete first!

This schedule is flexible enough that holidays do not affect it (other than influencing my choice of actual meeting times). In other words, please work around the holidays!

Each exam covers the chapters listed above it, plus recycled questions from prior exams, as described in the syllabus.
