I haven't checked this, but I doubt that you can get through any college
cirriculum without using a large number of textbooks with numbered sections.
Thus, if your readership is college-educated, books with numbered
sections should be a complete non-issue as far as "intimidating the
reader" goes.

I don't remember enough about high-school textbooks to know whether it's
true for that level, too.
