worksheets, available in the workbook or as PDFs, guide you through activities and ask for feedback. The .KMZ files,

designed to be read by the Google Earth™ application, contains placemarks, overlays, and annotations referred to in the

Geosystems website.  The supplement is perforated for homework assignments. It's the ideal companion to your introductory
