Thanks for getting back to me. IMO this title was divided into two volumes because the publisher thought the full text would be too heavy for a 6th grader to handle.

The covers are identical except that one says Volume 1 and the other says Volume 2. The title pages are identical (with no mention of volumes). The backs of the title pages are identical except that the two volumes have different consecutive ISBN numbers. Copyright, publisher etc. are identical.

The letter to the student is identical in both volumes. The author page is identical in both volumes.

The table of contents is identical in both volumes. It starts with the words "Volume 1". Then it lists all the information for chapters 1 through 6. Then it says "Volume 2" and lists all the information for chapters 7 through 13. The print page numbers continue on without a break between chapter 6 and chapter 7 (at page 353).

At the end of the contents for chapter 13, the following are listed (with page numbers from H1-H39): Glossary, Common Core Standards, Index, Table of Measures.

After the Table of Contents, the chapters start - Chapter 1 in Volume 1 and Chapter 7 in Volume 2. HOWEVER, those H pages appear identically at the end of both volumes - after chapter 6 in volume 1 and after chapter 13 in volume 2. That is, the identical Glossary, Common Core Standards, Index and Table of Measures (with the identical H page numbers) appear in both volumes, even though not listed in the TOC after volume 1. (The Index shows page numbers from all text pages as if there was only one continuous text.)

The agency informs me that, although the current client has ordered both volumes, it is always possible that a future client will want only one or the other.

Can you help me with the format of the TOC, please? TIA bt
