Versioning History

This page provides a record of edits and changes made to this book since its initial publication in the BC Open Textbook Collection. Whenever edits or updates are made, we make the required changes in the text and provide a record and description of those changes here. If the change is minor, the version number increases by 0.1. However, if the edits involve substantial updates, the version number goes up to the next full number. The files on our website always reflect the most recent version, including the Print on Demand copy.

If the book was produced in partnership with BCcampus, we will contact the author, make the necessary changes, and replace all file types as soon as possible.

Once we receive the updated files, this Versioning History page will be updated to reflect the edits made.
