The Structural Geology course will involve 13 or 14 one hour lecturers and two hour practicals. It is very important that the students attend all the lecturers and practicals. There will be a mid-term exam, and a homework. As part of the course I hope to organise a three-day field trip to the Bursa region. I personally read and mark all the homeworks, so please take it seriously. The final marks are calculated as follows: 65% of the results of the final exam, 30% of that of the mid-term exam, and 5 % homework, attendance etc.
For all the lectures please bring along. a) Pencil, b) Ruler, c) Protractor (açıölçer), d) Electronic calculator, e) Millimetric paper
