Guided notes on Absolute Aging was the main topic of the day today.  After defining absolute aging as the quantitative partner to relative aging, we reviewed radioactivity and half-life processes that we had introducted back in the fall during the chemistry unit.

Homework:  Don’t forget about the final draft of the reverse cross section that is due at the start of tomorrow’s class period.  Also, the relative aging quiz is tomorrow.  It will take about 10 minutes, is worth 10-15 points, and will cover the guided notes from section 3.2 (Relative Aging) as well as the relative aging puzzles.

Independent Study Students:  Those of you who have opted to tackle the independent study project will begin work next week.  One thing I forgot to mention on the handout:  be sure to record all of your sources!  If you begin researching your topic early (great idea!) just be sure to record the website addresses or the book titles/authors, etc…
