H417 Exam #1

Dear Class: Your first exam really includes your geography homework and your paper--again, do your own work. Quotes without quotations and copying words from your classmates is plagiarism and will be treated seriously. Pleas do your own work.

The work for the first part of class is not worth as much as the last two sections of class, designed to allow you time to accustom yourselves to the class. Here the first exam is worth 30 pts. However, I have added 20 extra credit points to the essay section.
