Bell Ringers: Set 1

1.     Thursday, August 9, 2018: Setting Up Your Notebook

        Setting up your Notebook….

        The first two pages are to be reserved for the table of contents.

        Do not pre-number your pages!

        Page numbers in this notebook will be the same as an assignment number.

        Assignments will be numbered in the upper right hand corner of the page.

        You may right on the backs of the paper only if it is because you are carrying over from the front page of the same assignment.

        Always, Always, Always begin a new assignment on the front of a page on the right hand side of your notebook.

        Do not write in the margins of the paper!

        Bell ringers will be located in the back on the notebook.

        The notebook should be turned upside down and backwards to begin writing bell ringers. (this way you will be turning pages like a normal book, it will just be upside-down.)

        Bell ringers should be numbered, dated, and copied exactly as they appear on the board

22.   Monday, September 17, 2018: Question

        Is Friction Harmful or Helpful? Explain.


23.   Tuesday, September 18, 2018: Fact
