    Notes:

    1. Underlined words represent (internal) hyperlinks to other 207 documents.

    2. * Quiz Policy: These are tentative dates unless or until the * is taken off. There may be a quiz at any Tuesday or Thursday and at any time during a class. These quizzes are designed to help you keep track of terminology and concepts used in class and the readings. Quizzes will involve the identification (definition) of terms or names (VIGs: Very Important Geographers) or the explanation of important concepts. These quizzes will be 5-15 minutes long. One quiz between the 4th and 6th week will be the designated "Midterm-Quiz", be a little longer than the others (1/2 hour?), and (probably) also contain a brief "essay-type" question.
