There’s a good reason math teachers always ask students to show their work. It’s because that’s how students show their thinking. Students can arrive at the right answer in incorrect ways, and they can arrive at the wrong answer using the right logic and math concepts. It’s no wonder adaptive products that only look at the answer have been so frustrating and ineffective. Knowing the conceptual approaches a student is taking for math problems is required to gain true insight into their conceptual knowledge.
That’s why DreamBox lessons are interactive models that allow students to engage with math concepts in visual and logical ways. With every mouse click and action a student takes, DreamBox gains insight into those conceptual approaches based on how they’re interacting with the manipulative. This gives DreamBox unparalleled insight into student progress and comprehension, resulting in more accurate data for reporting and forecasts and better personalization and adaptivity for your students.
