Last semester in some of our Math 376 discussions, we found that most of us (if not all?) use the term "Mixed Numbers" rather than "Mixed Fractions" and felt it was more helpful for our students (since we are referring to something that is only *part* fraction but also is part whole number).

If it is not too late, 376 teachers request the term "Mixed Fractions" be dropped from the 376 text and replaced with "Mixed Numbers." If it IS too late, or too much trouble to change, it is not a big problem for us to explain to our students that although many textbooks do use the term "mixed fraction," we will be saying "mixed number" ourselves.

- Example 8, page 296, the YouTryIt gives the problem $-2\frac49\cdot3\frac23$. It should say: $-2\frac49\div3\frac23$. (October 29, 2014: Ted Ridgway, American River College)
