Use Slide # Symbol Use Slide # These appear alongside the relevant text. With a few exceptions the slides provide illustration or additional detail, but do not introduce any new information. They are designed to reinforce points made in the text. The slides are stored in a PowerPoint format.

In addition, they can be printed out as handouts with three or six slides per page and copied for distribution to participants.
