#### Learning Mathematics through using theory, logic and visual demonstrations

to help you understand what you are doing.

Many Mathematical resources support a methodology based on learning rules. This site endeavours to teach Mathematics though understanding the theory and concepts behind the processes.

## G’Day!

My name is AusMagoo and I’m a retired Australian Maths teacher. Why the name AusMagoo? One day, while walking to a classroom, I was watching a student doing cartwheels in the courtyard and not watching where I was going and walked straight into a pole.

My students saw me and once they stopped laughing, started calling me Mr. Magoo after the blind, bumbling cartoon character, especially given my surname has a similar sound to it.

Why AusMagoo? Because I’m an Aussie of course!

At present there is only one module at this level and it is the Fractions unit. There is one free topic: ‘What are Fractions?’ and the rest of the module covers basic fraction operations.

At present there is only one module at this level and it is the Fractions unit. There is one free topic: ‘Introduction to Fractions’ and the rest of the module covers all the other fraction operations.

These modules are based on the VCE (Victorian (Australia) Certificate of Education) General Mathematics course. But the modules can be applied to other senior Mathematics courses.
