  • I have posted the long answer questions, but note that any number given in problems that involve calculations have been changed. This is so that you can practice the question, but cannot memorize the answer.

  • Since we have now had 3 snow days, we have no more class time before the exam. Some students still have to finish their culminating since I gave them an extra day if they needed it. Students will have to stay behind after their exam for this class (Friday the 25th) to complete it then, if they are not done. They can go for a quick lunch and come back or remain here and just get it done. I have posted the exam review, so please use that while studying. Remember to study your tests!!!!

  • Detailed Exam Review has now been posted with all the terms you have to know. I will make up baggies with the terms cut up for each unit so you can move them around the page to work through it. On your exam, the terms are broken up into their Units.

  • We will be having our exam for this course Friday, January 25th at 8 am in our classroom. The exam will cover all topics covered so far, including:

    1) Introduction Unit/ Fundamentals of Geography and Mapping

    2) Physical Geography

    3) Natural Resources

    4) Climate

    5) Population and Demographics

    For the first 3 units, the questions will come from previous tests and quizzes, but may be rearranged or reworded, so I encourage for these units to study the assessments more than anything. For climate and population/demogragraphics, the exam review will be more detailed, and the notes must be studied. 

    The exam will consist of multiple choice questions, true and false questions, matching definitions (where the terms will be broken up per unit so that it is more manageable) and the application questions which they will get in advance. So the format is the same as our previous unit tests. It will be out of 200 marks. They will have 3 hours to write it, unless they have an IEP for extra time. If they have a scribe for their exam, they will be writing it in the library. 

    I have posted a list of what tests/assignments and notes to study for the test and I will be giving a list of terms to know and a more detailed review sheet for the Population Demographics Notes.

  • There will be many short, multiple choice quizzes given after most lessons in this unit to help them prepare for their Unit Test. These quiz marks will only be used in their averages if they bring their mark up, and ommitted if they bring their mark down. Their main purpose is to check for the student's undertsanding of the material and to provide a study tool for the Unit Test when the time comes. If they miss the quiz, they are not required to write it, but will be given a blank copy with the correct answers so they still have the study tool.
