Front and Back Matter Discussion 9/15

Hey Finite Math cohort -

After the meeting today (9/15), here’s the efforts that are needed for the front and back matter for your Pressbook:

Front Matter:

  1. Create an Introduction - not sure what you want to put here?

Back Matter:

  1. Create or remove the Appendix - if you keep this, what will go here?
  2. Make sure all terms are correct in the Glossary

I’ll take care of continuing to edit and cleaning up the Summary of Adaptations in the Back Matter.

Front matter:
This book is designed to be used in any Finite Mathematics course, whether College Algebra is a prerequisite or not. There are sections at the end of Chapters 2 and 4 that use technology to solve problems that are solved in other sections in the chapter. As the instructor of the course, you can choose how much technology you’d like to use. The problems worked in Sections 2.5 and 4.6 are the same Examples and Exercises from the other sections of that chapter that can be worked with technology. The technology used in those problems is embedded into the textbook, so there is no need to purchase any additional technology!
