    Good morning,

    Please see the attachment from a 5th grade math workbook. I plan to do the layout of the cubes showing the orthographic view by using the mat plan as shown in the Tactile Guidelines Guidelines, 6.15.5. But I sure could use some guidance as to how to present the cubes with the outline of a box as shown in the picture to tie it all together.  There are several similar times in the workbook this is occurring.  Thank you for any suggestions you can give me.

    Hi Susan, thank you for your question.

    The use of the mat plan format for representing cubes shown in orthographic views is a good one. Now, regarding the wire frames that outline the cubes,  this should be disregarded. This change can be explained within a transcriber’s note at the beginning of each volume if the occurrence is frequent.

    Hope this helps!

    That makes sense about omitting the outer container box and explaining that in a TN.  Thank you.
