I am volunteering with a TVI and was given a "basic" set of worksheets to braille. Half of the sheets are to be done in linear format. If there are write-on lines after the math expressions, should they be left off per BF2016 sec. 10.5.1?
In a Nemeth transcription, omissions in a math problem are to be shown. If an omission is printed as a "write-on line", the Nemeth long dash is transcribed. For example, in 12 + 7 = __ is transcribed like this:
_% #12+7 .K ---- _:
Does this answer your question? If not, could you attach an example of the worksheet?
This is the most recent worksheet. I asked about leaving off the blank lines because the Nemeth terminator won't fit after the equation. In previous worksheets the minuend was in single digits so there wasn't a problem. Leaving off the write-on lines would allow the terminator to fit on the same line as the final problem.
The print worksheet shows the equations written vertically, but the TVI asked me to change the format to linear. The sample file she sent as a template is formatted like the attachment.
Oops, sorry. I didn't realize I needed to send a .brf.
I left a blank line before the problem set and started each problem in cell 1 per section 3.20 of the provisional course from the NFB's website. I put the Nemeth terminator on the same line as the last equation and answer line. Is this right?
