ALPHA Mathematics teaches via problem solving through the systematic development of problem sets; and by focusing on both aspects of problem solving - the method and the process.
ALPHA Mathematics explicitly teaches an efficient 4-step UPAC problem solving process. This process builds good habits for approaching mathematical problems of all levels of difficulty.
ALPHA Mathematics explicitly teaches different problem solving strategies and how to select, express, categorise and compare these strategies.
The Bar Model Method is one of the most powerful strategies for mathematical problem solving. It allows students to solve complex word problems using visual representation.
Students progress through different types of problem sets including word problems and non-routine problems.
