Alpha Mathematics Interactive Teaching Resource Pack (CD Annual Licence)

This pack contains 1 copy of The Alpha Mathematics Interactive Teaching Resource CD and 1 printed Annual Licence.

A completely customisable way to teach Junior Secondary Mathematics.

The Interactive Teaching Resource CD contains two versions of the Alpha Mathematics textbook and workbook in eText format. The first is suitable for viewing in the classroom, using a data projector or interactive whiteboard.

The eText contains links to:

  • Exercise answers
  • Pages of the Alpha Mathematics Workbook
  • Excel spreadsheets referred to in the text (some produced especially for this resource)
  • Flash animations
  • Useful websites
  • CAS calculator instructions.

The second version of the Alpha Mathematics text/workbook combination is for teacher viewing, and has additional links to hundreds of author comments on the material covered, as well as worked solutions to harder questions and blackline masters where appropriate. 

All the PDF files in this Interactive Teaching Resource have been user-enabled, so a Maths Department can add its own notes, comments, and hyperlinks to other resources as required.

Time Limit

The Barton Interactive Teaching Resources are available for purchase as an annual subscription. The licence is valid for 12 months from the date of purchase and will be automatically renewed each year unless cancelled.
