This is a Table of Contents for my Calculus chapter on Limits. My students have been creating an "Interactive Notebook" for 30 years, I just call it their Little Black Book (because it is a black marbled composition book). It is predominantly a concise discussion of properties with examples to review for the chapter test. Sometimes there are even fun things such as my foldables or graph paper post-it note explorations.
To get you started, I have included directions for starting a LBB, the table of contents for the chapter on limits and some sample pages. I give the students this table of contents on the first day of each unit so they can work on it as we learn the concept. (Surely teenagers are going to complete a few properties every night!!! Ha!!!!)
My students have a "Love-Hate" relationship with their LBB's. Since most of it is completed on their own, they hate it when they procrastinate. They love it when we do cutesy entries in class and when they need to review. They even take their LBB's to college as their security blankets.
I uploaded this Table of Contents for Limits in WORD so you can edit it to fit your needs. Don't try to do it all the first year. Have fun and grow your own Little Black Book!
