Title Alpha Omega has been launched with a new focus on pre-algebra learning and has been developed by a new group of teachers.
This new approach is intended to make learning more accessible for more students by offering a wide range of pre-aligned maths content.
It includes four modules of 30-60 minutes each that aim to give a solid grounding in the concepts, concepts, equations and algebra.
The module on ‘Algebraic Data Structures’ is a 10-minute module with a clear focus on data structures and how they work.
The other four modules cover the topics of ‘Equation Proving’, ‘Number Theory’, ‘Computation and Calculus’ and ‘Computing’.
In the modules on ‘Prealgebra’, there is a more focused emphasis on topics in the pre-existing introductory maths courses.
There are also a few supplementary modules on topics like ‘Algorithms’, ‘Probability’, ‘Algorithm Design’ and the topic of ‘Classical Algebra’.
For the introductory maths course, there is also a ‘Alphabets’ module.
These are a series of topics that take students through basic algebraic concepts such as multiplication and division.
They also cover topics like number theory, discrete mathematics, set theory and theorems of algebraic functions.
The pre-calculus modules are a little different to the regular maths modules in that they are more focused on building a foundation in the theory of algebra before moving on to the real world.
This means that it is a bit more challenging for a student to master the material in the regular modules, but it is still a useful introduction to the subject.
Algebra is the mathematical discipline that we take for granted in the modern world, but many people still struggle to grasp the basics.
That is why we need to develop a solid foundation in Algebra, so that students can get on with their education.
The new modules are available for free to all students who are already enrolled in a pre-approved curriculum, which is a free, full-time course.
A total of 12 teachers will be involved in the process of developing the new course, including teachers at primary, secondary and tertiary levels.
The curriculum will be developed in partnership with the Australian Education Union and the Australian Mathematical Society.
In the past, many Algebra teachers have been unable to provide the basic Algebraic course in a way that they can be taught by teachers.
This is due to a lack of time, space and resources.
The Alpha Omega curriculum is the result of a number of community-led efforts to increase the level of Alghamptarian content for Australian students.
Alphabet is a collaboration between Algebra Education Australia, the Australian Mathematics Society and the National Centre for Research and Innovation.
