Dreambox teaches math skills to kids by means of interactive digital content, individualized adaptive learning technology, easy 24/7 access and integration of instruction and assessment. The program also provides snapshots of individual student progression and problem spots to better enable teachers to respond to the learning needs of particular students.
Dreambox makes learning math a fun experience through its grade-adjusted interactive digital content, which includes colorful characters, story lines, music, voice-overs and games. For example, students in lower grades solve math problems to progress through story lines and are able to choose a character to personalize the learning experience. Throughout the problem solving process, characters emerge to encourage the student along, helping to build self-confidence in problem solving.
The program also possesses personalized adaptive learning technology to respond to the needs of individual students. Dreambox measures where a student is and bases the progression through the course on student abilities and needs. It also integrates assessments with the instructional content to test mastery of necessary concepts.
Students can log into the Dreambox website at any time of the day or week and can practice their math skills whenever they choose. Dreambox is also available in Spanish for the benefit of ESL students.
