As a nonprofit on a mission to help all students love learning math, we strive to make Zearn Math accessible for all students. We've made intentional decisions meant to support a diverse range of learners throughout the Zearn Math student experience, and we are working to conform with accessibility standards, including the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG 2.0). Our commitment to accessibility is ongoing and we will continue to make updates to ensure our curricular materials are usable for all students, including those with disabilities.
You can download our Commitment to Accessibility guide to learn more about the accessibility features included in the Zearn Math student experience.
A student’s Individualized Education Plan (IEP) should be the first resource teachers use as they look to differentiate instruction for a student with a disability. While Zearn Math’s accessibility features aim to ensure that all students can learn core content in two ways—Independent Digital Lessons and Small Group Lessons—Zearn realizes that not all children will learn best through software-based lessons. For example, due to the visual nature of Zearn Math’s digital manipulatives, students with severe visual impairments may be better served working with physical manipulatives. Students not able to access software-based materials should participate in Whole Group Fluencies and Word Problems
with the full class and Small Group Lessons
with their teacher and classmates. Rather than complete the Independent Digital Lesson,
students should complete lesson-aligned paper components including Student Notes, Problem Sets, Homework, and Exit Tickets
as determined and directed by the teacher.
