DreamBox Learning Math
[DreamBox Learning (877) 451-7845]
DreamBox Learning Math has been an award recipient of both the EDDIES and BESSIES in past years. In the Primary Learning Environment, the intelligent adaptive math curriculum targets the K-2 age group using a colorful, story-based adventure setting where students complete exercises and solve numerous interactive math problems (e.g., math rack, number line, counters, ten frames, addition and subtraction).
The subscription-based program has recently been expanded to include an Intermediate Learning Environment, challenging students in grades 3-6 to complete Units, such as Fractions in the Real World I and II, Equivalency, Multiplication, and Comparing Fractions. The interface is simple and appealing.
In both the Primary and Intermediate Learning Environments, the child receives auditory guidance, and there is even a Hint button. Of note is the "Too Hard" button, which reduces the difficulty level so frustration can be avoided. Rewards and incentives include mini-games, badges, collection items and coins.
A Dashboard area is provided so parents, teachers and administrators can access tools such as: Assessment - graphical summaries of progress and comprehension, which help to identify students requiring intervention; Management - easily create or remove classrooms, and add/move/edit/delete students.
DreamBox Learning Math offers differentiation, scaffolding and sequencing, and accommodates all students, both struggling and advanced. A free trial subscription is available on the company's website.
