The **DreamBox **adaptive curriculum allows students to work in lessons that build on prior knowledge, including lessons that may be aligned with standards that are a grade level ahead. Our unique lesson-sequencing technology, developed with our academic experts, allows us to maximize your child’s learning potential by providing the most appropriate lesson choices from different areas of the curriculum.

Research on how children learn math has shown that it’s not a simple, linear process; learning grows like a web through a range of experiences. Based on common national standards, most kindergarten curricula cover numbers up to ten and most first grade curricula cover numbers up to one hundred. However, that doesn't take into account the fact that, developmentally, a child that can count to ten is often ready to work with larger numbers.

With this research in mind, DreamBox was designed to focus on **mastery** so that students can, and often do, work in multiple grade levels at the same time. The "grade levels" of our lessons are largely based on the **Common Core** standards that DreamBox aligns with. They are by no means meant to represent a static order in which lessons are offered. For example, a student who understands place value but has difficulty counting items in groups may be assigned earlier work that nurtures the ability to count in groups while simultaneously working on higher grade-level lessons that build upon their place value knowledge.

In all cases, please be assured that DreamBox Learning will adjust to your child’s optimal instructional level. The more they play, the more accurate DreamBox Learning’s assessments will be. Encourage your child to complete every lesson - even if they think it’s a little easy or too challenging - and you’ll soon see more appropriate lessons being presented.
