Earth's Interior Quiz

Nice job on the quiz today all! The averages were 90.2% for 3rd period and 91.5% for 4th period, which are both excellent! You are welcome to do corrections over the break. You should email me the correct answers to the questions you got marked down on, with an explanation of why it is correct, even for the multiple choice and fill in the blank questions. If you just email me the answers without an explanation you will not improve your score. You can make up up to half of the points lost.

Have a great Winter Break!
