About This Quiz

Geography is one of those topics that is horribly taught in schools, generally speaking. Somehow, many teachers manage to take the study of our physical world and how it interacts with us and we with it, and make it boring. However, the nerds among us know that geography is anything but dull. On the contrary, it's a fascinating topic that helps us to understand why societies succeed or fail, and what we can do to help them head in a positive direction.

Geography isn't just about remembering the names of cities, rivers, and mountains. It's also about knowing the tools that help a person to study these things, and how they came to be there in the first place. Most of all, it's about knowing how the topography of a landscape can impact the humans who live on it, and thus why civilizations tend to gather in certain places and to collapse under certain circumstances. It's an endlessly interesting subject that lends itself to a really dorky sort of memory, whereby you can absorb a great many facts and find them surprisingly relevant in your day to day life. It's time to see what you remember!
