Re: Road Scholar B

Could some one give me a semidetailed overview of this event? A couple questions I have: 1. What is this event about (major sections of test)? 2. What map do we study from? 3. What study resources should we use? 4. What are the major parts of this event? EDIT: This is my first time doing this, so t...

Re: GeoLogic Mapping C

Almost there, but I'll give it to you, Chris. Parts 1 and 2 are great, but the erosional process was glaciation--look at the shape of the valley.

Re: GeoLogic Mapping C

No problem at all, my season ended yesterday :( . I'm probably going to study geomapping all summer. Yay! Anyway, here's the next question: What type of formations are El Capitan and Half-Dome in Yosemite (a single-word term), how did they form, and why are we able to see them now (think about the h...

Re: Most Annoying Event?

Road Scholar/Geologic Mapping just seems so boring, although I've never done either event. Hey! Don't hate on Road Scholar before you try it. It's actually loads of fun because you almost always have to apply your knowledge rather than just recite information, and the stories proctors come up with ...

Re: Worst books

I chose to read Life After Life by Kate Atkinson off of my summer reading list for school, and I will forever regret that decision. I cannot comprehend how someone would actually spend the time writing an enticing teaser for a book so dreadful other than to relish in the pain of people like me havin...

Re: Water Quality B/C

Haha I felt like that question was pretty familiar xP. Having trouble in the waste water treatment. I can't really find any site that would explain it in an easier way. Does anyone know a site where it explains it well? In all seriousness, wikipedia is a very valuable resource for practically any W...

Re: Water Quality B/C

Sorry to intrude, but I recently went to an invitational and encountered a question that's a bit puzzling. How would you answer this: Q: Which of the organisms below (a-e) has a symbiotic relationship with coral? a. gorgonia b. long-spined black sea urchin c. hard coral d. pencil urchin e. crown of...
