Geotours Worksheet Quizzes - Coursepacks

The full coursepacks listed above contain the GEOTOURS WORKSHEETS Quizzes, based on the First Edition of the Geotours workbook. In July 2017, we released new quizzes that match the Second Edition of the Workbook. If you would like to update your coursepack, or you simply wish to only use the new GEOTOURS Worksheets rather than the full coursepack, you can download the Worksheets below and add them to your existing course.

Animations and Simulations

Developed by Alex Glass (Duke University) and Stephen Marshak (University of Illinois) these brief conceptual animations and simulations are perfect for in-class or online use. All have been completely revised to provide a consistent, detailed, 3D appearance. Selected animations and simulations include interactive controls that allow students to experiment with various geologic systems.
