1.) A quad-ruled composition notebook, NOT A SPIRAL BOUND NOTEBOOK. A quad-ruled notebook is a graph paper composition book. This notebook will be your Biology Interactive Learning Log (BILL) that you will use on a daily basis. You are to bring this to class by the second day of school, as we will use it from then on. This notebook is to be brought to class daily, as we will use it nearly every class period. Be advised that you may need to purchase an additional notebook during the year, depending on how much you write in it. These notebooks are available at Staples.
2.) Another quad-ruled composition notebook. This will serve as your laboratory notebook, where data will be collected and presented for every lab we perform in class. You will need to bring this to class daily. See the image below right for what this notebook will look like. If you are unable to purchase this notebook, please see me and we will work something out so that you have the supplies you need.
3.) An accordion folder designated for our class only, where you will store handouts, returned work such as quizzes, free response questions and practice exercises. Be sure to buy one that has at least 12 pockets.
4.) Black/blue ink pens and pencils. Work to be submitted for a grade WILL NOT be accepted written in any other ink colors.
5.) Highlighters. We will use these during in-class exercises, especially as we work in our BILLs
7.) A set of fine point, felt tip colored markers. To work in your notebook
8.) A zipper pouch To keep your pens and markers
9.) A TI 83 calculator. We will be using the stat functions in this calculator all year. You may use any calculator, but this is the one I will be teaching with in class.
