The difficulty of learning mathematics can be experienced by anyone from elementary school students to college students. Based on the results of several studies found primary teacher students have difficulty learning mathematics, especially in basic mathematics courses. primary teacher students are prospective teachers so that if the difficulties of learning mathematics are not overcome will affect the quality of education later. Basic mathematics is a mandatory basic competency for students in universities. Research on learning methods to overcome the difficulty of learning mathematics in primary teacher students in basic mathematics courses is still very little. Therefore, this study aims to describe the nature, steps, and weaknesses of universal design learning to overcome the difficulties of learning mathematics in primary teacher students in basic mathematics courses. This research was conducted through a literature study. A literature study is a series of activities related to the method of collecting library data, reading, recording, and processing research materials.
