Click Question 1 (3 points): Find the list of hypothetical geologic examples and click on "fault." We are asked to determine the correct sequence of geologic events shown by the cross-section.
In order to do this, we need to apply the principles of relative dating which we have learned.
For students in the 2004 Graduation Program, all Grade 12 exams are optional except for the Language Arts 12 and BC First Nations Studies 12 exams.
In anthropology, kinship is the web of social relationships that form an important part of the lives of most humans in most societies, although its exact meanings even within this discipline are often debated.This interactive asks you to use your knowledge of relative dating. Help us work out the relative ages of the layers of sedimentary rocks.You need to work out the order in which rocks were formed, from youngest to oldest. Remember that younger sedimentary rocks lie on top of older ones and were horizontal when formed.Just as Sherlock Holmes used his power of observation to decipher the clues to a suspect's past actions, we will let the blemishes and behaviors of the rocks tell us their past story. ) Remember that relative dating involves determining "which came first" rather than "exactly when did this happen." The first step to untangling the geologic history of an area is often to figure out what happened first, second and third, etc.without knowing the absolute ages at which the rocks themselves formed.
