Alignment of Equals Math with Alberta Program of Studies

These grade-level alignments are a reference that teachers can use in their instructional planning. When students are working on specific grade-level outcomes from the program of studies, some students, particularly students with significant disabilities, may need parallel types of learning activities that are more structured, more concrete or less complex. Most outcomes from the the Grade 1 – 6 Mathematics Program of Studies can be addressed through one or more lessons in the Equals Math resource—these alignment documents show these relationships. Using this alignment for planning will enhance a teachers’ ability to differentiate mathematics instruction as well as provide increased opportunities for students with disabilities to participate in meaningful learning experiences to develop numeracy, similar to their same-age peers.
