Master’s Thesis Appendix to thesis

I am compiling my thesis in latex and I want to add appendices, but I'm not quite getting it right. In particular the Appendix chapters get the right name for example Appendix A. But sections, figures and tables all get the wrong name. For example the first section in Appendix A is not A.1 but 1.1, which was already a section in the chapter before Appendix A. This is the code I use:

but the latex thesis cls file I use generates only the letter A followed by the appendix title:

- Even if the answers to certain questions that you may have used are discussed on the body of your thesis or your dissertation, the questionnaires that you used should still be included
- The best way to sort out data that you have gathered is by determining if it is a raw data, which should fall under the appendix, or if it is a data that has been analyzed already, then it should fall under the dissertation’s body.
- You should also include a description on the devices or tools that were utilized in order to acquire pieces of information

GUIDE TO WRITING A THESIS Appendix to the Thesis guide

The thesis cls file defines a "backmatter" command and the appendix is treated as a chapter.

For details of format and style relating to other sections of the thesis (including footnote and bibliography style), students should consult Turabian, the style manual recommended by their department or program, or any other standard style manual being used. The sample table of contents, list of figures, and list of tables in Appendices , , and , respectively, provide examples of suitable formats for those parts of the thesis. provides a suitable sample format for the text of your thesis. provides a sample thesis appendix. provides a sample bibliography. provides a sample reference, or literature cited, list which may be used either with, or in place of, the bibliography. (In certain scientific fields, a list of "References" or "Literature Cited" may be more appropriate than a standard "Bibliography". While represents one approach, please note that lists of References or Literature Cited formats differ among various scientific fields. You should check with your thesis advisor, or refer to one of the standardized thesis preparation manuals for the format which is appropriate to your academic field.) Care should be taken to maintain consistency of style and format throughout the thesis.
