Does anyone know whether Dynamic Planet E/V for 2016-2017 will be one or four notesheets? It seems that the change from one to four notesheets came after E/V was last ran as a topic, but I don't know whether four notesheets is now the universal policy for DP regardless of the topic or whether E/V will be the only topic to remain at one notesheet.
I am assuming it will be four because the information seems to be equivalent or greater than that of oceanography, but the fact that only one sheet was allowed the last time E/V was run makes me apprehensive. I have already started mine and I'm over half way finished with the first draft and It would be tough to be thoroughly prepared with only one sheet granted you could just memorize a lot of it
Back in my day we only got one notesheet for Oceanography, so you might end up getting four for E/V as well. You kids have it so easy. :roll:
Agree, 4 sheets is overkill; I never even finished creating one side of one sheet last year (then again we got 23rd at nationals so idk).

So is Tectonics the same as E/V? I noticed that the old wiki page for E/V was re-titled as Tectonics but it still has all the info from E/V.

Yeah, I think people use those names interchangeably.

I did dynamic planet/oceanography this year; it was really easy and I did pretty well. I think it's because I crammed a lot of info into the 4 sheets we got for notes (by the way, the font Calibri [bold] in font size 8 on google docs worked best for me).

Font size 4 fan here! I use regular Calibri on powerpoint because I found it to be the most readable at small font sizes. Plus condensing from the get-go allows me to only fill up one or two sheets, which is easier to look through when we need to find stuff quickly.
