lecture_problemsAnything that hasn't been discussed in lab.
lecture_suggestionsHave midterms earlier. We are half way done, but we have 2 midterms and it would be easier to spread it out.

lab5_favoriteIt was so cool watching the sand deform.
lab5_suggestionsI was really unclear doing the writeup until I got help in office hours. We could have had some summary time after the experiments to talk about what just happened.

lecture_comparedA bit uncertain about what to expect
lecture_problemsThe Mohr circles and the amount of terminology. I also have difficulty concentrating on the reading. It often seems very dense.

lab5_favoriteWatching the faults form. It was cool to see that what we are learning about actually happens.
lab5_suggestionsI found that some of the questions were a bit vague. I had trouble answering some of the questions because I was unsure about what was being asked. It would also have been nice to have the pictures all at the same scale, or measure angles and distances in the lab, and not from the pictures.

lab4_suggestionsi had a hard time with a couple of the questions about translating mohr circles into a real life map view. some clarification on this would be a worthwhile topic. i am sort of unsure about how the mohr circle relates to real life fault geometry
lab5_feelingsOK, but conceptually a bit tough

lab5_suggestionsI had a really hard time on this lab mostly because we did not discuss any of the exercises in class. This makes it really hard to connect what we did to what it means structurally. I think this lab was worthwhile, but i know that i am going to go back with matt and figure out how to do a lot of it.

lab3_suggestionsDo it all on the computer. Maybe with a little practice on paper to get the idea, but do most of the work on the computer.

lab3_favoritefinally turning it in....I did like the information it yeilded about anticlines and synclines
lab3_suggestionson this lab I spent soooooo long trying to figure out the program and computer stuff, but the morh diagram computer stuff was a lot easier to deal with

lab4_suggestionsIt was still a little lengthly
lab5_feelingsOK, but conceptually a bit tough

lab5_favoriteI liked the in lab experiment and how that related to the lab
lab5_suggestionsfor all of these labs, maybe some more time in lab where we can actually work on the questions in the lab
