Equals Math Canadian Version

Books

Contact us for pricing.

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 over 100 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, a web-based Technology Lesson Center, and access to a Members Only site. Equals is an appropriate choice for students with cognitive disabilities, autism, and for English Language Learners (ELL).

 

 

 

Product Overview

 

The Canadian version of Equals was created specifically for Canadian learners with: 

  • Metric measurement
  • Canadian currency
  • Canadian cultural references and images
  • Canadian spelling
  • Manipulatives that conform to the above i.e. metric thermometers, rulers etc.

It comes complete with over 100 manipulatives, adapted tools, vocab cards, worksheets and other materials making it ideal for a contained classroom or resource room.

Equals utilizes general education math methodologies including Concrete, Semi-concrete, and Abstract (CSA) instructional sequence. In addition, Equals connects manipulatives, concepts, real-world interaction, and multi-sensory experiences that enable all students to actively learn math and demonstrate significant, measurable progress.
