Chapter 3 Minerals and Rocks Test  - This will be an open note (binder) test.

Due:

Chapter 3 Test Tuesday - Today students worked on pp. 142-145 "Review and Assessment"
 
*Students may use their binders on the test, so they will want to spend some time this weekend reviewing, adding to, and organizing their notes. 
 
Here are the answers for those pages to ensure they study the correct information over the weekend:
 
1.) C      2.) atoms     3.) answer was discussed in class     4.) B.     5.) rock-forming minerals
 
6.) This is a fine-grained, non-banded rock     7.) C     8.) mineral composition
 
9.) Magma that cools slowly underneath Earth's surface
 
10.) texture = coarse grain, mineral composition = silica, origin = intrusively
 
11.) A.     12.) rock fragments     13.) rock fragments    
 
14.) The rock is breccia, which forms from jagged pieces of other rocks
 
15.) D     16.) slate and gneiss
 
17.) because pressure compacts grains in shale to for slate
 
18.) heat and pressure can flatten the crystals in granite to form the bands in gneiss
 
19.) A.     20.) weathering and erosion     21.) weather and erosion
 
22.) D.      23.) nonrenewable    
 
24.) Sample:  Coal can be used to produce electricity, oil can power vehicles, natural gas can be used in stoves
 
25.) Sample:  Coal forms from decomposing plant matter. Over time, the plant matter turns into peat under pressure.  With more time and pressure, the peat becomes coal.
 
27.) Rock A - intrusive igneous rock, formed from magma that cooled slowly under Earth, so its grains are large.  Rock B is a foliated metamorphic rock.  It formed when great heat and pressure, applied over millions of years, changed another type of rock into this rock.  Rock C formed when the remains of ocean animals were squeezed and cemented together.  This is a very rough sedimentary rock. 
 
p. 145
 
1.) B     2.) C.     3.) A.     4.) D     5.) A.     6.) D
 
7.) The environment was probably very wet, because coal forms from the remains of swamp plants.  The shale is further evidence of a wet environment  b/c its clay particles are deposited by water.  The fact that there are alternating layers of coal and shale indicates that perhaps a river periodically flooded the area in which these rock layers formed, depositing the clay particles that form each layer of shale.  Eventually, the flooded area turned into swamps, resulting in layers of coal.
