I am rechecking files I formatted for 17-18 school year. I have questions about where to put Nemeth Code Indicators.
I am wondering if it is confusing to the student to go back and forth between exercise numbers in both ueb and Nemeth.
Questions 6. 7. 8. are in between paragraphs and then questions 9 and 10 continue. I put the nemeth code indicator at the top of question 6 and end nemeth code indicator after question 8. But questions 9 and 10 have wording before the equations so the nemeth code indicator is embedded.
Questions 6. 7. 8. are in Nemeth code and 9 and 10. are UEB. Does it matter? Will this confuse the student?
This is a great example. Somewhere along the way we realized/decided that there is no reason you can’t place the opening Nemeth Code indicator at the end of the line in instructions or a cell-5 or cell-7 heading. I would put it after the word “equation.” in the instructions. See the “solution” brf file, attached. **Note that you need to keep “12/36” and its switch indicators together on the same braille line. In an embedded expression, if the math and one or both switch indicators will fit on the line (within current margins), do so.
Back to your original question, a student will get used to seeing identifiers in both UEB and Nemeth Code. The transcriber’s decision regarding where to switch depends on the surrounding material. If you tried to make all the identifiers in an exercise set “look” the same (in the same code), there would be much too much switching going on.
