Review:

DreamBox Math is an online learning tool that focuses on math skills for children in grades K through 5. Presented in an entertaining and engaging manner, the 600 math lessons are aligned with Common Core State Standards, making the exercises useful not only in the home setting, but in school settings as well. When our young testers were first introduced to this website, they eagerly participated in the activities for over an hour. We had to ask them to stop. The children thoroughly enjoyed the tasks and the variety presented to them. Based on the child's performance (including accuracy and speed), an individualized program is developed, making this adaptable to each student's needs, be it math enrichment or intervention. The power behind this adaptive learning engine is nothing short of remarkable.

Adults appreciated the data available to parents, teachers, and administrators. Using the parent/teacher/administrator dashboard, you are able to see how long each child was on the site and which tasks have been completed. The report shows where each child is currently working in the curriculum and on which specific skills she is working. Upon conclusion of each visit, parents are sent an email explaining what the child completed and what was accomplished. Teachers and schools can obtain individual student data as well as school-wide data to monitor progress. We highly recommend this program to families and schools.
