INTERACTIVE NOTEBOOKS

Students are required to keep an "Interactive Note Book" or INB for this class. This consists of a folder with two pockets and notebook prongs. Assignments are kept in the pronged portion of the folder in the order the assignments were given. An Assignment Record Sheet serves as the table of contents listing the number of the assignment, the date it was assigned, the name of the assignment, and the points available for the assignment.
