About This Curriculum

Equals math is a proven multi-sensory math curriculum for students with disabilities at all levels of ability within every special education setting. Students learn foundational math and solve real-world problems as active learners, including students with significant and intellectual disabilities, K-12th grade.

Students begin by connecting their world and what they know about math to new concepts, building their math knowledge over time. With linked lesson objectives and vocabulary, Equals math provides multiple paths for teachers to provide support for their students as they learn and demonstrate what was learned.

Individual needs, for using math tools and manipulatives, choosing strategies, learning vocabulary, and talking about math, are met through use of the Action Dictionary with a variety of adaptations to support students’ language, motor, vision, and cognition.
