What is an "easy access social textbook?"

The online version of the book is easily accessible online without the need to login or provide an email address. Students can simply navigate to the website and browse the pages they need. Math & YOU incorporates social learning into its pedagogical approach.

Why are there so many pictures and illustrations?

Pedagogical research suggests that page layout, use of color, and photographs all contribute to the success of student learning. We used this research to develop an overall approachable, doable, and pleasing look.
