WELCOME to Fall 2013
Final Grades are posted below. Thank you for taking Oceanography
Let me know if you have any
questions. By the way, I don't push anyone into the next grade
range. The class is already curved with 2% extra for each grade,
so I follow the exact percentages.
Good luck on your finals,
This is a 3
unit course for non-majors. It is a general education physical
science class with NO lab. We learn about how the ocean was
formed, the waves, the tides, the animals that live in the ocean and
much much more.
This course requires students to watch videos on my website. You
will also need to purchase a set of DVDs and a book.
The class has no on campus meetings. It is an on-line course.
