lab2_favoriteconstructing a cross section.
lab2_suggestionssince we formally learned only about the structure of normal faults before doing this lab, give us data that will lead to construction of a cross section that applies those lessons. i ended up arbitrarily inventing structure and it was not rewarding.

lecture_favoriteI like the cool animations. These are very good for demonstrating how these features form. This is good for my understanding, better than a static picture.
lecture_suggestionsI can't really think of anything at this point. Ask me again at the end of the semsester.
lab1_feelingspretty easy, but kind of fun and worthwhile
lab1_time.75
lab1_favoriteThe field part. I need to spend at least two hours outside every day or I start to lose it. Also, field excercises are the most valuable part. The field is where I will be using this information, so that is the best place to learn it.
lab1_suggestionsThe instructions on the last section could be clearer, i.e. that it required measurement with a ruler/protractor, not just an eyeball estimate. I think the word estimate in the instructions through me off.
lab2_feelingstoo hard and asking too much of me
lab2_time10-12
lab2_favoriteThe fact that I knew how to make a cross section having dome it before. THose in the class who have not done this before likely felt they were in too deep with this assignment.
lab2_suggestionsThis lab requires a lot more guidance before turning us loose on it. I am lucky that I have taken 101 and field camp and have learned how to make a real cross-section. The computer program just doesn't cut it to teach students how to make cross sections.

lecture_favoriteThe really good 3-D animiations demonstrating the concepts. Powerpoint lectures are really easy to follow compared to chalkboard lectures.
lecture_suggestionsLess time answering student questions and more time for traditional lecture. Can the powerpoint files be made available for download along with the PDFs?

lecture_favoritethe powerpoint presentations and examples with movements really help to explain materials.
lecture_suggestionsmore through explainations of concepts. sometimes i feel that a concept is introduced, and then we quickly move on to the next thing. when i am confused about something, i write it on my questions, but it seems that those types of review questions are not emphasized in lecture. it frustrates me when i don't understand a concept, try to catch up by asking a question about it or rereading the text, yet still feeling behind and confused.
lab1_feelingsOK, but conceptually a bit tough
lab1_time5-6
lab1_favoritelearning how to differentiate between azmiuth and quadrant, building confidence in myself and my abilities with the concepts covered in this lab.
lab1_suggestionsnot assuming that everyone in the class has seen this material before. i felt really behind largely because i had used a brunton for the first time only a few days before this lab. i think that this lab didn't acknowledge that the prerequistes for this course clearly state that 101 is to be taken concurrently. i know that i am a minority in the class, in terms of taking 101 concurrently, but i still felt really confused and lost when we were out in the field and some additional guidance would have been helpful. i really appreciated it when matt took some time out at the end of lab to help me through a proper strike and dip measurement in the quadrant method. it was extremely helpful
lab2_feelingstoo hard and asking too much of me
lab2_time10-12
lab2_favoritethe challenge of thinking in 3-D and doing something that i have never done before.
lab2_suggestionsi was extremely frustrated by this lab, as i have never done a cross section before in my life and i felt extremely uncomfortable trying to do something that i have never done before, without really being taught how to do it. i spent time with matt working on it, and i felt more confident about it, but i still had a really hard time with B-B'. i feel that this lab was extremely difficult for someone who has never used a cross section. I am pretty sure mine is completely wrong, which means that i will have to spend a lot of more of my time trying to figure out how to do it correctly. i don't mind having to make an extra effort, but i feel that i really shouldn't have to if the labs followed the class prerequisite of taking 101 concurrently. i do appreciate matt taking extra time to teach me how to do things, but i am really upset that it requires extra time to learn something that this class is supposed to be teaching. i feel that this lab! was a good experience overall, but i also feel that it required a lot of extra time to learn everything involved.
