#### An environment that intelligently adapts to every student

The Common Core State Standards for Math (CCSSM) and Standards for Mathematical Practice were written to help teachers fine tune instruction and provide a clear understanding of what students are expected to learn. To provide students with the foundation for deep, fundamental mathematical understanding, the DreamBox curriculum intelligently adapts to every student, regardless of mathematical ability or level as it aligns with these Common Core Standards: Counting and Cardinality, Comparing, Operations and Algebraic Thinking, Number and Operations in Base Ten, and Number and Operations in Fractions.

CCSSM | 7.RP.A.1 | Compute unit rates associated with ratios of fractions, including ratios of lengths, areas and other quantities measured in like or different units. For example, if a person walks 1/2 mile in each 1/3 hour, compute the unit rate as the complex fraction 1/2 divided by 1/4 per hour, equivalently 2 miles per hour. | Grade 7 |

CCSSM | 7.RP.A.2 | Recognize and represent proportional relationships between quantities. | Grade 7 |

CCSSM | 7.RP.A.3 | Use proportional relationships to solve multistep ratio and percent problems. | Grade 7 |

CCSSM | 8.EE.A.3 | Use numbers expressed in the form of a single digit times an integer power of 10 to estimate very large or very small quantities, and to express how many times as much ones is than the other. | Grade 8 |

CCSSM | 8.EE.A.4 | Perform operations with numbers expressed in scientific notation, including problems where both decimal and scientific notation are used. Use scientific notation and choose units of appropriate size for measurements of very large or very small quantities. Interpret scientific notation that has been generated by technology. | Grade 8 |

CCSSM | 8.EE.B.5 | Graph proportional relationships, interpreting the unit rate as the slope of the graph. Compare two different proportional relationships represented in different ways. For example, compare a distance-time graph to a distance-time equation to determine which of two moving objects has greater speed. | Grade 8 |

CCSSM | 8.EE.B.6 | Use similar triangles to explain why the slope m is the same between any two distinct points on a non-vertical line in the coordinate plane; derive the equation y = mx for a line through the origin and the equation y = mx + b for a line intercepting the vertical axis at b. | Grade 8 |

CCSSM | 8.EE.C.7 | Give examples of linear equations in one variable with one solution, infinitely many solutions, or no solutions. Show which of these possibilities is the case by successively transforming the given equation into simpler forms, until an equivalent equation of the form x = a, a = a, or a = b results (where a and b are different numbers). | Grade 8 |

CCSSM | 8.EE.C.8 | Understand that solutions to a system of two linear equations in two variables correspond to points of intersection of their graphs, because points of intersection satisfy both equations simultaneously. | Grade 8 |

CCSSM | 8.F.A.1 | Understand that a function is a rule that assigns to each input exactly one output. The graph of a function is the set of ordered pairs consisting of an input and the corresponding output. | Grade 8 |

CCSSM | 8.F.A.2 | Compare properties of two functions each represented in a different way (algebraically, graphically, numerically in tables, or by verbal descriptions).

CCSSM | 8.F.A.3 | Interpret the equation y = mx + b as defining a linear function, whose graph is a straight line; give examples of functions that are not linear. For example, the function A = s2 giving the area of a square as a function of its side length is not linear because its graph contains the points (1,1), (2,4) and (3,9), which are not on a straight line. | Grade 8 |

CCSSM | 8.F.B.4 | Construct a function to model a linear relationship between two quantities. Determine the rate of change and initial value of the function from a description of a relationship or from two (x, y) values, including reading these from a table or from a graph. Interpret the rate of change and initial value of a linear function in terms of the situation it models, and in terms of its graph or a table of values. | Grade 8 |

CCSSM | 8.F.B.5 | Describe qualitatively the functional relationship between two quantities by analyzing a graph (e.g., where the function is increasing or decreasing, linear or nonlinear). Sketch a graph that exhibits the qualitative features of a function that has been described verbally. | Grade 8 |

CCSSM | 8.G.A.2 | Understand that a two-dimensional figure is congruent to another if the second can be obtained from the first by a sequence of rotations, reflections, and translations; given two congruent figures, describe a sequence that exhibits the congruence between them. | Grade 8 |

CCSSM | 8.SP.A.2 | Know that straight lines are widely used to model relationships between two quantitative variables. For scatter plots that suggest a linear association, informally fit a straight line, and informally assess the model fit by judging the closeness of the data points to the line. | Grade 8 |

CCSSM | A-CED.A.2 | Create equations in two or more variables to represent relationships between quantities; graph equations on coordinate axes with labels and scales. | Algebra |

CCSSM | A-SSE.A.2 | Use the structure of an expression to identify ways to rewrite it. For example, see x4 y4 as (x2)2 (y2)2, thus recognizing it as a difference of squares that can be factored as (x^2 y^2)(x^2 + y^2). | Algebra |

CCSSM | K.CC.A.1 | Count to 100 by ones and by tens | Kindergarten |

CCSSM | K.CC.A.2 | Count forward beginning from a given number within the known sequence (instead of having to begin at 1). | Kindergarten |

CCSSM | K.CC.B.4 | Understand the relationship between numbers and quantities; connect counting to cardinality. When counting objects, say the number names in the standard order, pairing each object with one and only one number name and each number name with one and only one object. Understand that the last number name said tells the number of objects counted. The number of objects is the same regardless of their arrangement or the order in which they were counted. Understand that each successive number name refers to a quantity that is one larger. | Kindergarten |

CCSSM | K.CC.B.5 | Count to answer 'how many' questions about as many as 20 things arranged in a line, a rectangular array, or a circle, or as many as 10 things in a scattered configuration; given a number from 1-20, count out that many objects. | Kindergarten |

CCSSM | K.CC.C.6 | Identify whether the number of objects in one group is greater than, less than, or equal to the number of objects in another group, e.g., by using matching and counting strategies. | Kindergarten |

DreamBox has been very instrumental in The Common Core Report is my favorite. It helps me to see exactly what areas the students are working on and passing. I can also see where they are having difficulty and spending more time. I use this data for small group time where I can focus on the specific areas that each student needs help.
