1. The numbers in front of many of the document names reflect a suggested (but very ignorable) order.  When two different handouts begin with the same number it is because we don’t yet have a recommendation about their relative order.  


2. Word documents are included here so teachers can manipulate the documents to meet student needs.  The pdfs have been included to preserve tricky formatting.
