 Welcome to Geography 103.  This week, please

  1. Read online notes 16 and 17a, 17b. And read Chapters 16 and 17 in the text.  This week there are video lectures as well; the links are in the online notes.  These might help you understand the material. 
  2. Lab 4 is due Tuesday, April 20. You will have to do it all in one sitting (but there is no time limit).  Use your text and online notes as references – it IS open book.  Allow 2-3 hours.
  3. Make a contribution to the online discussion forum on Canvas www.canvas.ubc.ca by Saturday midnight. This is a great way to get to know your classmates.
  4. Record your readings on Canvas by Sunday midnight.

I send out a weekly announcement through Canvas. If you did not get this announcement, please check the email address you have on the Canvas site or the Announcements on the Canvas Site.  The announcement is also here.
