Required Resources


  • McConnell, D., & Steer, D. (2015). The good earth: Introduction to earth science (3rd ed.). Boston, MA: McGraw-Hill.
    • Chapter 4, “Plate Tectonics” (pp. 75–104) 

      In this chapter, you will learn more about plate tectonics and forces behind it.

    • Chapter 5, “Earthquakes”
      • 5.3 “Faults, Earthquakes, and Plate Tectonics” (pp. 110–117)
      • 5.6 “Earthquake Hazards” (pp. 126–134)

      Is the area you live in susceptible to earthquakes? Chapter 5 discusses the forces of plate tectonics, faults, earthquakes, and how they affect the planet.

    • Chapter 6, “Volcanoes and Other Mountains”
      • 6.2 “Magma Viscosity” (pp. 142–144)
      • 6.3 “Magma Sources and Magma Composition” (pp. 144–147)
      • 6.5 “Products of Volcanic Eruptions” (pp. 152–160)
      • 6.6 “Volcanoes and Volcanic Landforms” (pp. 160–164)
      • 6.7 “Mountains: Why Are They There?” (pp. 164–167)
      • 6.8 “The Rise and Fall of Mountains and Temperatures” (pp. 167–169)

      You have learned about plate tectonics and heard of magma below the Earth’s crust. This chapter discusses the properties of magma, the part that magma plays in plate tectonics, the creation of volcanoes, and how mountains form as a result of plate tectonics and volcanic activity.
