When I (Dr. C) came to Minnesota as a new faculty member, a former-teacher friend at my church told me "It's not the things we don't know that are the problem--it's the things we do know that are wrong!"
There are quite a few Earth Science misconceptions that we teachers encounter in secondary and college classrooms. We find lots of them in science fiction as well!
Are you tricked by these very common misconceptions? Take the Challenge and find out!
Exactly half of the statements below are true (or at least accepted as true by most scientists) and the other half are false. If you get half of them right, that's just random guessing. If you get less than half right, you are being tricked by the misconceptions. If you get more than half right, then you have more knowledge than misconception!
Have fun! (and beware of the 'nots')
