Every student can learn math skills. Every student can succeed.
The first standards-based Pre-Algebra & Pre-Geometry math curriculum for students with disabilities.
When students move from basic skills in mathematics to more complex thinking, there is a shift of focus. In Equals Pre-Algebra & Pre-Geometry, students prepare for deeper thinking about math and increased overlap across the math content areas. Equals Pre-Algebra & Pre-Geometry is about number relationships more than ever, providing students with the confidence they need to reach new levels in mathematics and to succeed in understanding more complex math concepts and solving problems. Given the variety of manipulatives and pic-symbol supported vocabulary, worksheets, and problems, Equals is an appropriate choice for students with cognitive disabilities, autism, and for English Language Learners (ELL).Learn more about Equals and ESL/ELL Students.
