The DreamBox student experience is rooted in video game fundamentals, designed to attract digital natives, encourage learning progress and keep engagement high. This construct, when interwoven with math lessons, allows students to learn in a familiar environment and encourages desirable behaviors like persistence, ingenuity and focus.

DreamBox Math responds to students' actions and decisions by continuously adapting to support student competency with math concepts, and promoting strategies for fluency and application. DreamBox promotes active learning so students think and do for themselves in math instead of sit-and-get content, where they watch someone else do all the thinking. Age-appropriate learning environments put students at the center of their own learning--encouraging independent critical thinking and productive struggle while fostering engagement and motivation.
