**Week 1**

- Textbook: The first reading assignment is Chapter 1 and the appendix reading about stereonets.
- Please buy a protractor from the bookstore (or bring the one from your majors kit). I recommend the red see-through kind where the protractor is within a ruler.
- Bring to class each day: protractor, colored pencils, textbook.
- The California map assignment is due next Tuesday. And hey, I forgot to print this short article so you complete the assignment.
- Image: Your first image assignment is also due next Tuesday at the start of class. Here is the image and the blank form to sketch on. This assignment will be graded on a ten-point scale: 3 for the sketch, 3 for the observations, and 3 for the interpretations. The last point is reserved as a
*je ne sais quoit*point, which is awarded for special reasons that are hard to explain. - Stereonets: Want to review? Here are two potentially useful handouts. One on how to plot things on stereonets. One on lines and planes.
- Discussion: Next week, we have our first SAF discussion on Thursday. Bring your typed answers to the question to class.
- Lab: Your lab exercises (stereonets & maps) are due on Thursday at the start of lab.
