In what kind of rocks would you expect them?
sketch Bowen’s reaction series showing all the minerals, and label it, and
you’ll see your spouse is going to admire you. Understand how the chemical
composition of the remaining magma changes during crystallization!
is time to explain what is magmatic differentiation, how different rocks could
form from one magma? Or how can different magmas form in different plate
of igneous rocks
Classification of igneous rocks?
Describe rocks in the mafic, intermediate, felsic group. For this, I think it is
better to find someone who is also taking this class for credit.
is viscosity, and explain the effects of temperature and SiO2
Understand the different igneous bodies, and be able to sketch them.
Know about different volcanic activities (table)
