Instruction The lecture exercise includes links for two 2 sets of online notes and a notes self test for the two major topics covered in the lesson. The laboratory exercise includes links for four 4 laboratory activities and a laboratory self test for topics covered in the lesson.
Ryan Lafrenz Course Objectives This is an introductory course covering the theory and application of geographic information systems GIS. The course includes an overview of the general principles of GIS and practical experience in its use.
The lectures follow the organization of the textbook. The practical component involves the hands-on use of desktop GIS software packages. The course includes a final project component, through which students will investigate the application of GIS technologies in depth.
Other readings may be assigned. Practical Component Class will consist of lecture, discussion, and labs. You will be given time in class to work on the labs; Sabin has open hours if you do not finish. The practical exercises provide a way to acquire skills using ArcGIS and other software packages and to apply the course concepts to real data.
Lab assignments should be submitted on the date specified on the lab, at the beginning of the lab period you will normally have at least one week to complete each lab. Assignments that are not submitted on time will be subject to a late penalty of one letter grade per working day. Project Assignment The project is intended to provide a deeper understanding of a GIS application through hands-on experience.
The project should investigate a particular research problem using GIS software from class.
You should acquire and, if necessary, create the spatial and attribute data required to complete the project. The project should involve some type of spatial analysis.
Projects can be done in teams of up to two members see exception below. There are several stages to the project, with due dates outlined below.
The quality and timeliness of these intermediate products will be incorporated into the final project grade. More information on the projects will be distributed during the semester. Participation and Attendance Because of the lab-based structure of this class, attendance is extremely important.
Other Information WebCT will be used to post grades, reading material, and lecture outlines, and it will be used to facilitate class participation and discussion.
It will also have the most up-to-date version of this course outline. Students will also use WebCT to present information on the progress of their course projects. To access WebCT, go to http: They will also have more stringent requirements regarding the length and depth of course work.
More information will be distributed in class.An examination and critique of the history, fundamental assumptions and methodologies of science.
Topics to be discussed may include the nature of scientific theories, the problem of induction, theories of probability, and the demarcation and growth of scientific knowledge.
Section 2 (on-line lecture): You will view the lecture materials on WebCT Vista and then take an on-line quiz (the deadline is midnight on the Tuesday that a particular lecture is given in class).
You will have two chances to take each quiz. to WebCT no later than 1/7 and attend the first Itv session on 1/7. ITV dates: 1/7, 1/21, 2/4, 2/18, 3/4. EDCI Education as a Profession Seminar 3.
Peer Review of Classroom Teaching Procedures. Was the lecture well organized? 3. Did the topics clearly fit into the course syllabus?
4. Was there good flow? If the notes were available on WebCT, were they easy to follow? Did the instructor monitor the class for understanding? Did the instructor use examples and answers. Module 3: American Indian Clients Topic 2: Arizona Indian Tribes The Many Voices of Native Americans in Arizona: Nowhere is the diversity within ethnic groups more clearly shown than in the Native American tribes located in Arizona.
I would like to give you a small introduction to seven of these tribes in the hopes that you will do further research . Topics will include formal logic, methods of proof (including induction), set theory, graph theory, recurrence relations, and some advanced topics to be determined.
