    notebook

    In classes students write the notes and points that teachers say on their notebook or some sheets of paper. This pack is referred to as....

    a. pamphlet
    b. class text
    c. etc
    I need the word native people in different countries use.

    In the future, usually students call this with the name of the teachers like 'Dr. Ragin's pamplet'

    Thank you,
    ata

    Students take notes when teachers lecture. There is no special name for this. If I missed a class, I would ask a classmate if I could copy their notes for that day.

    ُThank you, so when the term is finished can I call the pack of notes and sheets written in Dr. Ragin's class, 'Dr. Ragin's notes'?

    No. If you're going to use the possessive, then you use the name of the person who wrote them. If I always use and copy the notes written by my classmate Sarah, then at the end of term, the pile of notes are "Sarah's notes". They are the notes "from Dr Ragin's class".

    Not all students take notes in the same way though. Some will use a small spiral notebook, some blank sheets of paper, some will take notes on their computer. There is no standard way of taking notes. I can't think of any circumstance where I would call it a pamphlet. In the UK, a pamphlet is usually pre-printed information in a small book style.
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.
