Eart10L, Geologic Principles Lab, is a separate one-credit course. This class started during week of 1/14. Many students have found in the past that taking Eart10L helps with Eart10, but the lab is not required. However, Eart10L is required (or Eart5L or Eart20L) for Earth and Planetary Sciences majors and minors. Please see the Eart10L syllabus and ask Andy or one of the TAs if you have questions about Eart10L.

Please note: the one-hour discussion section is part of the regular Eart10 class. Everyone MUST attend discussion section each week. Attendance will be part of your grade, and it will be MUCH easier to complete the homework assignments with help from your discussion section TA.

Class notes are updated through end of first week, both PDF and Powerpoint slides. The handout on units/significant figures/accuracy/precision, math assessment, and math assessment key are posted as well. If you did not attend section first week of class, please download and complete the assessment, then check the key to make sure you know how to solve the problems. Please see the instructor and/or TAs for assistance. Tutoring is available: https://eop.sa.ucsc.edu/OTSS/tutorsignup/1/7/19

Welcome to Eart10! This web page and associated links are under construction throughout the quarter. Check back for information and updates on assignments, preparation for tests, suggestions for class projects, etc.

Discussion section C, Weds 10:30-11:30, has been shifted to E&MS Room D236 (rather than D250).

Please be sure to attend discussion section during the first week of class! During this section, we will hand out a math evaluation exercise, which will help you figure out how to use a scientific calculator, and to see whether you may need some extra help with the math part of the homework exercise. Find out when and where these sections meet by looking at the table of options on the Eart10 syllabus.

Please note: the one-hour discussion section is part of the regular Eart10 class. Everyone MUST attend discussion section each week. Attendance will be part of your grade, and it will be MUCH easier to complete the homework assignments with help from your discussion section TA.

A note about enrollment in discussion sections. We currently have the fewest people enrolled in discussion section B, Tues 6:15-7:15. Please consider switching into this section, as it will help to even enrollment and assure that students get more attention from the TAs and instructor in section.
