      • You may use the front and the back. 
      • Do not use a notecard larger than 4x6 inches.
      • Must be handwritten.
      • All notecards will be turned in after you'd finished the final - no sharing of notecards.
    • You may use your MT Tech Periodic Table (not your "blank periodic table") and a calculator on the final.
