Equals Online


Equals Online - Mathematics and Special Educational Needs is a valuable resource for those working to ensure that all pupils will benefit from mathematics. Classroom teachers need the best support to develop good practice in line with current initiatives and it is the aim of Equals to provide this support in a number of practical ways. Age range: 3-18+ years

Equals Online is produced by teachers and curriculum/SEN specialists dedicated to opening up mathematics to low attainers. In practical terms it provides support through the exchange of ideas to help teachers reveal the excitement and applicability of mathematics to those who have in the past found the subject inaccessible and/or irrelevant. Updates on issues affecting practice, book reviews, practical ideas and resources are just some of the features of Equals Online...
