Beginning Algebra 6e is a worktext, meaning the design is open and friendly with wide margins so can you can encourage your students to take notes and work exercises right on the text page. Also with worktexts, images/visuals are used more frequently to convey the math concept so there are fewer words and less text for the student to read.
