Image Disclaimer

CCCOnline’s eText has been adapted and reorganized carefully to meet the outcomes and competencies established by CCCS and gtPathways. As such, CCCOnline has incorporated a lot of additional material and has excluded some material from the original eText deemed unnecessary. Not all Figures and Maps from the original eText are included, but the numbering of said images from the original eText remains. Thus it is possible that Figures and Maps appear out of order or not at all. When students refer to these images, they should reference the numbering system included in the image description regardless of page or module within the CCCOnline eText. For example, when referring to Map 1.2, students would reference Map 1.2 in Chapter 1 of the eText. For specifics on formatting please ask your instructor.
