Homework for week #9 Study for Exam 2: Review chapter summaries, take practice quizzes, review your notes, read the book!
You may want to do the practice quiz in Chapter 10 (Streams, rivers and flooding), but I won't collect it or count the grade.
You will need a scantron form for the test: Scantron #4521.
You can get this scantron form at the bookstore. You will need at least 3 of these scantron forms this semester.
