My suggestion is a $12 thumbdrive for 16 GB. I find the Kingston DTSE9 variety which also fit a keychain to be sufficient and for a low price, and no problems installing ubuntu nor it's various flavors such as Kubuntu, Mint, etc. Some thumbdrives don't load as easy, although running "dd" command hasn't failed to clone a copy from a loaded thumbdrive to a problematic drive which won't install any other way. If you fail to "Install" Ubuntu to the thumbdrive, then give Universal USB Installer program a try, available from pendrivelinux.com site. The only way you can be sure what you report to teacher is correct, is to actually use Ubuntu and test it out. If looking for help in DOS you'd type "help" then the command. Linux is similar, but several helps available. You can type help followed by the command, some require the command followed by a space and --help, you can type "man -k command-name", and theres also "info command-name".
So, for price of a thumbdrive and some time, you can gain a lot of both knowledge and experience, and I doubt you will regret the time spent doing so either.
