Ch 11: Metamorphic Rocks - A Deeper Look: Tutoring Solution

About This Chapter

The Metamorphic Rocks - A Deeper Look chapter of this Earth Science Tutoring Solution is a flexible and affordable path to learning about metamorphic rocks. These simple and fun video lessons are each about five minutes long, and they teach the processes and classification of metamorphic rocks required in a typical earth science course.

How it works:

  • Begin your assignment or other earth science work.
  • Identify the metamorphic rocks concepts that you're stuck on.
  • Find fun videos on the topics you need to understand.
  • Press play, watch and learn!
  • Complete the quizzes to test your understanding.
  • As needed, submit a question to one of our instructors for personalized support.

Who's it for?

This chapter of our earth science tutoring solution will benefit any student who is trying to learn about metamorphic rocks and earn better grades. This resource can help students including those who:

  • Struggle with understanding the conditions that lead to metamorphism, texture and parent rock classifications, contact metamorphism, regional metamorphism or any other metamorphic rocks topic
  • Have limited time for studying
  • Want a cost effective way to supplement their science learning
  • Prefer learning science visually
  • Find themselves failing or close to failing their metamorphic rocks unit
  • Cope with ADD or ADHD
  • Want to get ahead in earth science
  • Don't have access to their science teacher outside of class

Why it works:

  • Engaging Tutors: We make learning about metamorphic rocks simple and fun.
  • Cost Efficient: For less than 20% of the cost of a private tutor, you'll have unlimited access 24/7.
  • Consistent High Quality: Unlike a live earth science tutor, these video lessons are thoroughly reviewed.
  • Convenient: Imagine a tutor as portable as your laptop, tablet or smartphone. Learn about metamorphic rocks on the go!
  • Learn at Your Pace: You can pause and rewatch lessons as often as you'd like, until you master the material.

Learning Objectives

  • Identify the factors that influence metamorphism.
  • Understand how metamorphic rocks are classified.
  • Learn the differences between contact metamorphism and regional metamorphism.

Metamorphism of Rocks: Definition, Process & Influencing Factors

1. Metamorphism of Rocks: Definition, Process & Influencing Factors

Exposure to intense heat and pressure can result in the metamorphism of previously formed rocks. Learn about the factors that influence metamorphism and the metamorphic processes: recrystallization, neometamorphism and metasomatism in this lesson.

Classification of Metamorphic Rocks: Texture & Parent

2. Classification of Metamorphic Rocks: Texture & Parent

Metamorphic rocks are classified by their texture, which is either foliated or non-foliated, and according to their parent rock. Learn about the different textures and parent rocks of metamorphic rocks.

Contact Metamorphism Vs. Regional Metamorphism: Definition & Differences

3. Contact Metamorphism Vs. Regional Metamorphism: Definition & Differences

There are two types of metamorphism involved in the creation of metamorphic rocks. In this lesson, you'll learn the definitions of and differences between contact metamorphism and regional metamorphism.

Foliated Rock: Definition & Examples

4. Foliated Rock: Definition & Examples

Is a zebra a white horse with black stripes, or a black horse with white stripes? Either way, it's the stripes that make the zebra special. In the same way, foliated rock is special because of unique stripes, which you will learn about in this lesson.

What is Quartzite? - Properties, Uses & Facts

5. What is Quartzite? - Properties, Uses & Facts

Learn about quartzite, a hard, light colored metamorphic rock that forms when quartz sandstones undergo metamorphism. It has many uses, including building materials and industrial chemical applications.
