Learning activities and teaching methods
Monologic (reading, lecture, briefing), Dialogic (discussion, interview, brainstorming), Work with text (with textbook, with book), Demonstration, Laboratory
Learning outcomes
1. Creation of the knowledge of the basic concepts of mineralogy, structural crystallography, systematic mineralogy, make a presentation with physical and chemical features of the minerals, 2. Make a presentation with the processes and patterns of the formation rocks in the earth's crust, genetic structure of the magma rocks, sedimentary rocks and metamophites (lit-par-lit gneisses). 3. Applied identification of the minerals and rocks.
Student will be able to of orientation in the abiotic nature, will be able to exploit of the theoretical knowledge and their application during the solving of the ecological problems concerning of the mining of the mineral resources.
Prerequisites
no
