Tests, quizzes, and projects will fall under the FORMAL grading category, and will count as 60% of the IPC grade.
Daily work and labs will fall under the INFORMAL grading category, and will count as 40% of the IPC grade.
The photo shows a Five Star composition book, hard cover, non-perforated. It is my favorite, of the several types I have tried. But, they are not easy to find. This year I had to order them online for about $6. They also make a poly cover one that sells for about $2.50 at Walmart. Mead Five Star is durable, and will most likely hold up all year long.
Any composition book should work, but I would not recommend a spiral notebook, or any other type of perforated notebook.
Supplies Needed for IPC: We have always shared scissors, glue, calculators, pens, sharpeners, staplers, etc. Due to the COVID-19 virus, and our attempt to prevent cross-contamination, it is very important that each student have their own supplies this year, kept in their backpack.
