Keep these guidelines in mind when putting your notebook together to make sure you get the best possible grade:

1. Pages must have page numbers in the upper right hand corner of each page.  If not, this will be minus 10 points.

2. Pages must be in order according to the table of contents.If not, this will be -10 points.

3. Pages must all be present in the notebook. If not, this will be -10 points for EACH missing page.

4. Pages must be secured in the notebook. In other words, no pages that are falling out or just stuck into the notebook. If pages are unsecured, this will be -5 points.

If you did not get an opportunity to organize your notebook in class, here is how it should be put together...
