Teacher Review

DreamBox Learning Math is an interactive, adaptive, self-paced math program which adapts the game while the child is playing it, analyzing each pause, mouse movement, click or error. The DreamBox curriculum goes deep, teaching strategies for manipulating numbers that are based on research into how mathematicians think about number. DreamBox Learning curriculum is aligned to national and regional mathematics standards in the USA and Canada.

DreamBox scaffolds understanding of mental math strategies embedded in realistic contexts and supports children in seeing the math in the world around them. This is not about rote memorization of facts and formulas, it's about building a network of number relationships, understanding why strategies work and using models and contexts to move from concrete to abstract thinking.

Teachers and parents are able to create and customize accounts for individual students. The Insights Dashboard gives teachers, administrators, and parents access to reports on skill and standards progress and mastery for each student. DreamBox Learning provides metrics for school and district administrators including school-specific summaries, concept mastery reports and trends in platform usage over time.

Dreambox have school plus home accounts, so that students can pick up from the same place at home. Dreambox also provides a great deal of information to teachers on the back-end, including levels of concept proficiency, areas where individuals students are struggling, and the usage over time. This is helpful both in planning small group and individual follow-up work and in having conversations with parents about what their child is working on.
