Innovative lessons for key K-8 math concepts and skills

The Pennsylvania Academic Standards work together to enable all students to develop the world-class knowledge, skills, and life and career characteristics identified in the Profile of the Pennsylvania Graduate. Because manipulatives and technology are integral to the development of mathematical understanding in all grade levels and courses, Pennsylvania Academic Standards recommends that the curriculum should support, and instructional approaches should include, the use of a variety of concrete materials and technological tools in order to help students explore connections, make conjectures, formulate generalizations, draw conclusions, and discover new mathematical ideas. DreamBox provides rigorous lessons and easy-to-use reporting that supports the Pennsylvania Academic Standards, teachers, and students. You can track progress with Insight Reports that surface student performance by each standard and even create personalized assignments aligned with specific Pennsylvania Academic Standards Course of Study.
