APES NOTEBOOK
To receive full credit, your APES Notebook needs to be kept in a three ring binder and in this specific order.  Each item needs to have the item number written on it.  We will have announced notebook checks after every 25 items.

Due to budget constraints, items with  **  will need to be printed by you and brought to class.  We will have classroom sets of all others.  If you prefer to have your own copy to write on, you may choose to print them for your convenience.
