Teacher Review

Reflex Math is an adaptive and individualized program to help students master basic math facts  in addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. Reflex Math app is great as an intervention for students who are having difficulty with basic fact fluency in math. Full of games, Reflex takes students at every level and helps them quickly gain math fact fluency and confidence. Educators and parents can also monitor progress and celebrate success. Reflex Math is available to teachers and students grades 2-5.

Students are given access either during whole class computer time as a follow up or menu item, given opportunities at recess, or cycled through classroom tech a few students at a time. Reflex can take as little as 10 minutes after students have learned the skills necessary to maximize the program. The students can find fast-paced games and rewards while Teachers can use the reports that will help them monitor and track their students’ progress. 

One of the best features of the program is that students learn related operations at the same time, with visual representations that help them deepen their understanding.

The following are key features in Reflex Math that help build fluency
 
Fact family approach
 
Reflex uses a fact family approach when teaching new facts. A fact family (or number family) is a group of related facts that use the same numbers, such as 8 + 3 = 11, 3 + 8 = 11, 11 – 8 = 3, and 11 – 3 = 8. Learning related facts at the same time is ultimately easier and more efficient than other approaches. And it helps students understand the nature of inverse operations.
 
Individualized instruction
 
Reflex adapts itself to each individual student. It learns which facts and families the student is not yet fluent with and then continually monitors progress towards fluency. It uses this information when making instructional decisions for that student. This means every student is learning and practicing the right facts at the right time.
 
Game-based design
 
In Reflex, practice occurs in fluency development games. These games provide a lot of fun alongside serious amounts of practice with answering facts. Unlike typical math fact games, they require students to engage in increasingly complex and fast-paced decision making. Students are also motivated to practice because the games provide consistently challenge and reward them for both their effort and progress.

Is Reflex available in languages other than English?

Yes. Reflex is available for students in English, Spanish, or French. The default language is English.

Reflex Math offers a free 30-day trial that provides full access for one teacher and 35 classroom students.
