    Your use of 'dont' isn't correct here. It has a number of meanings, it could be loosely translated as 'which' but doesn't fit into this sentence so I'd scrap it and exchange with because.

    "Ma matière préférée est les maths parce que/car je le trouve facile".

    The reason you use je le trouve rather than je les trouve is because you made 'matière préférée' the subject of the sentence. and its one subject, so it's singular.

    Let's turn that around and say you said.

    "Les maths sont ma matière préférée" then you would say... "parce que je les trouve faciles" because the initial subject of your sentence is plural - "les maths".
