How I Use It
In my class I use it to teach those abstract concepts that are often difficult for students to understand. Dreambox is amazing at teaching the WHY. Why is -4 x -5 positive 20? How does algebra work and how is it related to patterning. I also love how easy it is to set up for all different levels of learners.
My Take
I wish it had more resources to teach students in a group setting. Or more tools to use when starting a new topic. I love my smartboard and wish I could use it more for Dreambox.
