Swamped with your writing assignments? Take the weight off your shoulder!
Your assignment is to write a 250-500 word (excluding references, captions, and section headings) lesson on a Learning Objective.
Learning Objective.:About Large Scale Mining
Consider the differences of grades and tonnages between ore
deposits for different commodities (e.g., Cu vs. Pt).
This lesson should not be a summary of the course notes. Instead, you are expected to explain the topic in your own words in a way that will help other students learn it. We strongly encourage you to use outside sources. You will need to cite all of your sources. For information on how to find good sources online and how to cite them, see this page: Reliable Resources and Citations.
Depending on which Learning Objective you have been assigned, you may have to expand on the topic as appropriate. For example, if you had the Learning Objective “Identify the prominent uses for gold, platinum group metals, and diamonds”, instead of just identifying those uses, you could do further research on why each material is appropriate for those uses. Remember that this outside research must still be related to the course content.
