Schremmer's Reasonable Decimal Arithmetic (RDA) -- v4.1





Reasonable Decimal Arithmetic (RDA) (2016) was to be a complete bundle for as realistic an ARITHMETIC course as could reasonably be presented in a Developmental program, that is with a reasonable number of students succeeding in the course but also, and much more telling, succeeding in subsequent courses.
At this point, I may or may not complete the text---which you are welcome to do as it is open source.

The ancillaries are fully functional. (Except for a few glitches with some of the files called I, II, III, and ALL but these files are just intended to get quick cumulative looks such as the pdfs downloadable below. As such, they are absolutely not used in a class.)
Another caveat: these ancillaries probably do not correspond to this edition of the text and I will try to adjust this as soon as possible, but, until then, this can be easily adjusted in the files in the folder CheckableItems-contents, one for each chapter,. That's all that's needed.
The Ancillaries are In LaTeX and are open source.

For each chapter, there is an editable file in the folder Checkableitems-contents from which each of all the other content files for that chapter can be let to select checkable items. For each chapter, there are three "assessment documents", CLASSWORK, HOMEWORK, QUIZ. For each group of six chapters, there is a "testing document", REVIEW-EXAM-MAKEUP. Each of these "documents" consists of a content file and a control file: All the "documents" of a kind, CLASSWORK, HOMEWORK, QUIZ, REVIEW-EXAM-MAKEUP, are formatted by default from the corresponding stylesheet but for each individual document and for each chapter, the commands can be renewed in the control file. For instance (% comments the line out.):
