DreamBox can also adapt the level of difficulty, scaffolding, sequencing, and the number of hints, the pacing. This is all done in real-time, allowing students of all levels to progress at a pace that suits them. Various math instruction to meet the needs of every learner The rigorous Pre-K to Grade 5 math curriculum effectively teaches curriculum based on the Common Core State Standards. In it the lessons are aligned to the Common Core and they use industry-best virtual manipulatives, for deep thinking and true conceptual understanding. The comprehensive reporting tools at the district and school level track student’s proficiency and progress against CCSS, TEKS, SOL, WNCP and the Ontario curriculum. The engaging learning environment that is also a lot of fun! Creating an experience that captures the student’s imagination and attention is just as important as an intelligent adaptive engine or an alignment to the Common Core.

DreamBox Learning’s online educational games make learning math both entertaining and effective. There is a deep math learning curriculum: • over 1000 lessons in the curriculum • lessons developing computational fluency, conceptual understanding, and problem-solving ability • built around the Common Core State Standards. (Read more about our educational curriculum.) DreamBox adapts to each child: • the adaptive learning looks beyond right or wrong answers, assessing a student’s strategy. • it assesses the speed of giving the reply • it gives the extra incorrect hints in gaining the right answer • based on the data above, the GuideRight™ technology adapts the lesson, the difficulty, the number and type of hints given, the pacing, sequence, and much more. • Lessons are placed throughout the adventures assess students’ knowledge (they can skip what they know and focus on what they’re ready to learn.) • DreamBox Learning provides millions of different paths through the deveoped curriculum.
