Are There Online Math Lessons for Kids?

DreamBox Learning and Time4Learning are two online math programs for young students. DreamBox Learning provides adaptive and individualized technology, standards-aligned material and 24/7 online access for students. Time4Learning features interactive activities, progress tracking, parental tools and has lessons designed for preschool children through high school students.

DreamBox Learning features adaptive learning technology that identifies a particular student's abilities and skills and adjusts the material based on that data. The succeeding lessons adjust to provide struggling students with simpler material while fast-forwarding proficient students to more advanced problems. DreamBox's online math material also aligns with Common Core and other United States educational standards. It is available for students to log in around the clock on any day of the week. The program is also available in Spanish for ESL students.

Time4Learning's math curriculum covers number sense and operations, geometry and spatial sense, measurement and data analysis and probability. The program is completely online, so teachers do not need to purchase additional material. The program allows students to log in at any time of day and to work at their own speed. Students who perform well gain access to an online playground.

Teachers and homeschooling parents have the benefit of an automated grading system and online report keeping.
