Fall Math Challenge 2015 is Here!
Fall is in full swing. Are you ready for the next DreamBox Learning Math Challenge? Dive into your new Insights Dashboard and share how we’re partnering with you! The DreamBox Learning Math Challenge begins November 1, 2015. Now is the time to get hyped about data and reward your classroom with cool prizes including fun packs, cool swag, and more—just for using DreamBox!
The Spring Math Challenge was a tremendous success. Just ask Francisco Martinez’s third-grade class at Twain Elementary, which took home one of the Grand Prizes! They won the “Highest Average Lessons” category by completing 4,872 math lessons for an average of 203.8 lessons per student. “I love to integrate DreamBox in my classroom because it adapts to every student’s individual needs,” said Martinez. “It exposes my students to new Spanish vocabulary-especially math vocabulary-which is vital to my dual-language classroom. I’m all for it.” Check out their full story here.
This time around, there are two ways to win the Math Challenge (visit the official contest webpage):
1. Share how you’re using your new Insights Dashboard. It’s easy to enter to win. Answer two questions related to a new report that will be featured every week and you’re all set!
What’s it telling you about the students in your classroom?
How are you going to use these insights?
2. Submit a 1-3 minute DreamBox Story video showing how using DreamBox makes you a better teacher. Make it personal and vote! ! Encourage all of your colleagues, family, and friends to ‘like’ your video on the contest page. If your video gets the most Facebook ‘likes’, you could win one of the two Grand Prizes!

So what’s the best way to win? Be creative when preparing. As your students make using DreamBox a habit, both at home and at school, have them brainstorm some additional ways in which they can log more play so you can gain more meaningful insights. Here are a few examples:
- Morning work time while waiting for all students to arrive on campus
- In the car on the way to weekend sports tournaments or while waiting for a sibling to finish soccer practice
- At the library
- Waiting in the carpool line to pick up a sibling
- During indoor recess on raining days
- Trade 30 minutes of watching one cartoon on the weekends for 30 minutes of DreamBox play
Regardless of when, where, or how it’s time to start preparing for the most exciting challenge of this semester!
