Equals Math Canadian Version



Add to Wishlist

Equals is a new, age-neutral math curriculum for students with complex needs. Equals encompasses:

  • Pre-readiness math skills (attending, cause and effect, etc.)
  • Fundamental math skills (numbers and operations, measurement, estimation, etc.)
  • and higher order math skills (data analysis, probability, spatial sense, geometry, algebra, problem solving, etc.)

Unlike other curricula that focus solely on functional math (eg. money skills), Equals connects functional math to abstract ideas by basing each lesson in themes of home, community, and/or school. It comes complete with manipulatives, adapted tools, vocab cards, worksheets and other materials making it ideal for a contained classroom or resource room.

The program includes a content kit, a manipulative kit, and access to a Members Only Portal. Equals is an appropriate choice for students with cognitive disabilities, autism, and for English Language Learners (ELL).
