Q Assessment Review
Please review your notes and make sure you are comfortable with the following terms. While our Q
Assessment is not a vocabulary test, being familiar with these terms, all of which are found in your notes
and can be found on my website (rossbrownscience.com) will certainly help you answer the questions.
Please use this sheet; it is yours. Jot down notes or draw pictures so you’re sure you are familiar with all
of these terms. Remember, the goal isn’t to memorize these terms but to be familiar with them and
with how to answer questions about them using your Earth Science Reference Table.
