Ryerson University Geography106 Intensive Course QUIZ 1 Intro, Spatial Concepts, Environment Perception This topic list is designed to help you study the PowerPoint for the test. It is not a substitute for studying nor will I entertain complaints that it misguided you! Most of the items on the list below refer to a single PowerPoint slide (text and diagrams). No hidden slides are included in the test unless I told you to review them in class. Some questions will require you to look through 3 or 4 slides in sequence. Most of the list will be almost verbatim titles from the slides or in the text of the slides, and is in rough chronological order. You still have to choose the correct answer from the choices that will be offered in the test and some questionsanswers might span lectures. Note that I normally do not expect you to remember any numbers from data slides except in terms of greater than, less than, increase, decrease etc, unless I mentioned that you need to remember specific data in class. Likewise, I normally do not expect you to remember dates I give you periods and you need to know what went on. Know what the course is about what does it explore?
