Students have begun to use **DreamBox Math,** an adaptive online learning environment with the intent of deepening understanding of computation, conceptual understanding and problem-solving in K-2. With an initial assessment and ongoing placement lessons throughout, students can work in their 'optimal learning zone.' Learning experiences target what students are ready to tackle and move ahead at a personalized rate of **acceleration. **The lesson sequence and pacing will adjust in real-time based on right or wrong clicks as well as strategies each learner uses. Feedback is immediate and the number and type of hints provided also becomes individualized. In addition, teachers have access to **virtual manipulatives** to support student's development of mathematical thinking and receive real-time assessment data to inform instruction. There is a parent dashboard too for family involvement at home.
