Aug. 16, 2011 - PRLog -- Roseville, MN (August 10, 2011) – AbleNet, Inc. announced today key additions to its highly successful AbleNet Equals® Mathematics curriculum with the introduction of the Equals Pre-Algebra and Pre-Geometry curriculum.  Just like the core AbleNet Equals curriculum, Equals Pre-Algebra and Pre-Geometry provides complete standards-based lessons for students with mild, moderate, and severe disabilities.

Each lesson provides instructors with a comprehensive assessment,  learning the essential Pre Algebra and Pre Geometry skills through C-S-A, real life transformations and composition activities, manipulatives, worksheets, posters, workmats, and cards. As part of its growing line of mathematics curriculum, AbleNet Equals Pre-Algebra and Pre-Geometry are designed to teach students with disabilities the necessary strategies and elements needed to progress in mathematics.

“It’s more important than ever that we provide all students with the opportunity to demonstrate their capabilities in  more complex mathematics content areas, specifically the convergence of measurement and geometry, algebra and numbers and operations, data analysis and algebra, algebra and geometry,” remarked Ann Meyer, AbleNet’s Vice President of Curriculum and Software.  “AbleNet Equals Pre-Algebra and Pre-Geometry provides students of all abilities with the confidence they need to reach new levels in mathematics and to succeed in higher order math skills.”

Common Core Ready  
AbleNet Equals Pre-Algebra and Pre-Geometry adheres to Core State Standards for Mathematics by building math preparedness through an incremental and systematic progression from concrete to abstract reasoning. In addition, Equals Pre-Algebra & Pre-Geometry pulls together the critical instructional elements of communication and engagement by providing the strategies and manipulatives that enable all students to demonstrate measurable progress on math outcomes.

Researched Based
AbleNet Equals Pre-Algebra and Pre-Geometry derives its educational foundation from the research-tested Concrete, Semi-Concrete and Abstract pedagogy  (C-S-A).
"CSA math strategies are common to high quality general education mathematics curricula. We have applied those same tested principles towards our special education approach, combining CSA with manipulatives, instructional materials, and technology that provide access to students with disabilities," Meyer said.  “In other words, Equals combines proven methods from both general and special education to create a truly unique and effective approach to mathematics instruction.”

AbleNet Equals Pre-Algebra and Pre-Geometry kits are shipping in time for the beginning of the 2011-2012 academic year. For more information, visit
