Section 3.9 of amsldoc describes how to achieve breaks within equation 
groups like this. However, note that a break there should be discouraged 
--- it will make it harder to follow the sequence, I'd say.

The same way as with latex. Use option fleqn. Adding it as a class 
option should work, if not, load the amsmath package with that option also.
