The last information I have about graphing calculator screens in a math book is that we are supposed to use Nemeth and not CBC or anything else. However, I believe we are supposed to follow the print capping and spacing to reflect the reality of the screen.
I have the following - Y = A+BLNX The ln is an abbreviation for a natural logarithm. If this equation were not shown on the calculator screen, the ln would not be in caps and there would be a space before the X.
As it is, I wonder how to cap it. If I put a cap indicator before each of the letters, this make nonsense of the LN because each of the two letters does not have a separate identity.
But I cannot see putting a cap in front of the B followed by a double cap in front of the LN and then another cap before the X.
Thanks for all the help you have given to me and others this year. May you go from strength to strength in the year to come.
Hi Barbara. I'm sorry to be so slow in answering this, but we are still discussing the question. Are all of the letters in your screens capitalized? If so, the suggestion is to insert a tn stating that all of the letters are uppercase but you are not transcribing them that way, then you don't have to deal with the cap signs. If not, let me know because I will need to get a consensus on the issue.
It's good that you are discussing it though. I don't believe that there has ever really been time for the best minds to consider this. The person who told me to use Nemeth and following spacing and capping in print also said to do that "for now, until we figure this out". This was about 10 years ago.
