Brief Into to science concepts
Into to topographic maps, reading contour lines, drawing contour lines, gradient, and drawing a profile. All of the references to pages and chapters refer to Tom McGuires Review Book.
ESRT for Smart Board
Every individual ESRT chart/table on its own separate page. I would recommend opening the pdf version of the larger pages directly in Adobe (History, Interior of the Earth, etc.). Adobe is zoomable, Smartboard software is NOT so you won't lose details.
This is the back cover of the reference tables with a few highlighted boxes that can be moved around to direct attention to the mineral at hand.
