    Today in class:
    • POP quiz!  But don't worry--the quiz wasn't for a "grade", it was just to help you assess how much studying you still need to do for the TEST on this FRIDAY.
    • To prepare for the TEST on FRIDAY you should study your self-corrected pop quiz, the review sheet (part 2) that you rec'd today, and your LAB that you will do tomorrow. Re-reading your other assignments in this unit, like your Michigan Mining and your Webquest would also be helpful.
    • HMK: GEO ECO Review~Part 2: use the PPT notes above and the webquest to help you with this.
