The Dinosaur Core is a unique section of the College's Core 8.2 course. It
is the only Core section that focuses on dinosaurs. Although the first part of the course
deals with basic geologic concepts, and thus treats subjects encountered in Core 8.2
sections offered by other members of the Geology Department, the primary aim of the Dinosaur
Core is to examine the lives and times of dinosaurs. Emphasis is on dinosaur anatomy,
ecology, evolution, and extinction.
Topics dealt with during the term include:
|Schedule & Format||Textbook & Reading List|
|Syllabus of Lecture Topics||Field Trips|
|Study Guides||Virtual Laboratory|
