Good morning, I am working on a 3rd gr math book. Could you please help with the formatting of the bulleted lists and displayed expressions? They also have colored digits in the displayed expressions. Do I put an embedded tn telling the reader what colors are displayed? Or do I set it off and write it before?
Sorry for all the questions, I have a total brain melt down with all the different rules and things I have done this week. 😉
Thank you for all your assistance with this. I know that I would not want to do this job without experts like you to help me.
Hi Tina. The BANA Math committee is making some suggestions regarding the application of the new Formats Guidelines to Nemeth transcriptions. Follow Formats guidelines for bulleted lists including using the symbol that the Guidelines show [braille]_4
Nemeth has its own rules for the presentation of typeform. Color is not included. In your example, it does not appear that color is necessary for the understanding of the expressions. Nemeth says not to indicate typeform if it has no meaning. If you decide that the color is necessary, you will need to devise a way to show that. Do not use the Formats symbols because they can too easily be confused with mathematical symbols (shapes).
I ordinarily leave out the color in situations like yours because it interferes with reading the math expressions, especially in the lower grades.
