Transcript GEOG 1400: World Regional Geography, Fall 2015 Initial upload Saturday, 31 October Getting ready for Exam 3 (12:00 12:50 Monday 9 November: All of chapter 4, Modules 4.1 and 4.2, chapter 5, and Modules 5.1.1, 5.1.2, 5.1.3, and 5.1.5, as well as assigned additional readings (Cottrell and Farago), associated lectures, and video) This exam will cover all of chapter 4, Modules 4.1 and 4.2, chapter 5, and Modules 5.1.1, 5.1.2, 5.1.3, and 5.1.5, as well as assigned additional readings (Cottrell and Farago), associated lectures, and the video presented between the 14th of October and the 6th of November. The textbook contains more material than could be covered in lecture and your understanding of some of this additional material will certainly be examined. However, in general it is probably best to use the lectures as a guide to reading the text for a closer investigation of concepts, issues, and basic factual information that is likely to appear on this exam. While it may be covered in later parts of the course, material covered on the following pages of the textbook will NOT be reviewed in this exam: Pages 76-79 (The Relationship of Human Settlement and Diversity of Climate and Vegetation), 84-87 (European Colonialism & 4.4 Economic Geography), 89 (Insights box), and 92-93 (Differences between Europeans and Americans) of Chapter 4 (A Geographic Profile of Europe). Pages 102 (Insights box), 103 (London Town), and 104 & 105 (the two boxes about the Geography of energy) of Module 4.1 (The European Core). Pages 155 158 (The Roles of the Climates and the Vegetation) and 161 170 (Sections 5.3 & 5.4) of Chapter 5 (A Geographic Profile of Russia and the Near Abroad). Pages 187 (The Sex Trade) and 199 207 (Sections 5.1.5 and 5.1.6) of Module 5.1 (Fragmentation and Redevelopment in Russia and the Near Abroad). AA..

Multiple-choice questions will primarily cover lecture material, with a few rehearsing textbook material not covered in lectures but relevant to the unit involved in any given exam. Completion questions will primarily cover the additional readings assigned for a given unit available at the class website. Finally, some of the map-identification questions will be of the multiple-choice variety, while some will be of the completion variety. Each exam is worth up to 200 points and covers only material presented since the previous exam date. As of Saturday, 31 October, writing of the exam has just begun, so only the following is known at this point: As with Exams #1 & 2, it will probably consist of 60 regular-credit questions and about 10 25 extra-credit questions (of the same value). While all of the sample questions listed below are drawn from the assigned readings, lectures, and video, careful study even before this point in the semester should have shown how material covered in the chapters is amplified by lectures. Of course, if any of these questions are used on the exam, they may be re-worded! MULTIPLE-CHOICE QUESTIONS Question 1. The regional economy of Italy a. makes it the 2nd-poorest economy of the EU15. b. depends on Catalonia, productive of productive of 75% of the countrys GNP. depends on Macedonia, productive of 40% of the countrys GNP. d. depends on Lombardy, productive of 54$ of the countrys GNP. e. depends on the Rhne-Alpes, productive of 30% of the countrys GNP. f. None of the above. Question 2. This European Union country is NOT part of the so-called Blue Banana. a. Belgium. b. Denmark. c. France. d. Germany. e. Italy. f. Luxembourg. g. The Netherlands. h. Switzerland. i. Ukraine. j. The United Kingdom. COMPLETION QUESTIONS come into two varieties. The first type provides you a statement with two or more blanks and a set of responses from which you have to select the correct answers put in the correct order. For example, Today there are Question #3 member-states in the European Union, with Question #4 having joined in 2013. Five more countries have formally applied for membership, including Question #5. Question 3. a. 3 b. 15 c. 21 d. 28 e. 54 Question 4. a. Bosnia b. Croatia c. Darfur d. Norway e. Russia f. Ukraine Question 5. a. Abkhazia, Belarus, Kosovo, Moldova, and Ukraine b. Albania, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Russia, and Transnistria c. Belgium, Chechnya, Cyprus, Daghestan, and Georgia d. Bulgaria, Iceland, Norway, Switzerland, and Russia e. Georgia, Greenland, Iceland, Mauritius, and Shetland f. Albania, Macedonia, Montenegro, Serbia and Turkey The second type provides no responses, so you have to know the answer directly; for example: Question 6. _____________ is both an EU and Schengen Area member but not part of the Eurozone, while ____________ is a Schengen Area member only, and ________________ is an EU member only.
