EXTRA CREDIT OPPORTUNITY!  Virtual River Lab.  This is not easy, but you can absolutely do it -- If you read and follow the instructions!  Go to the website for Geology Labs online  (http://www.sciencecourseware.com/VirtualRiver/).  Read the instructions.  At the bottom of that page in a yellow box click on the "River Discharge" exercise.  This will bring you to page 1 of 25.  Read the instructions carefully.  It starts out easy and gets progressively more complicated.  I would recommend having a calculator handy.  Also, don't forget to print out the certificate of completion at the end.
