Reflex Math Open Through July 31, 2021

Math fact fluency refers to accurately recalling the basic facts in multiplication and division quickly and effortlessly. When children gain automaticity with these facts, they have attained mastery that allows them to remember them without conscious effort or attention. Children who have achieved fluency can devote their working memory to problem-solving and learning new concepts and skills. When a child has not gained fluency, it hinders progress with problem-solving as the child is using the working memory to compute the operation instead.

To help support your child’s fluency growth, the district has extended the Reflex Math membership through at least July 31, 2021. Your child will be able to log into his/her account even though the school year has ended. As a parent, you can login using your child’s information to check on his/her progress. This will help to support your child’s transition to the next grade. If your child has difficulty using the program, please feel free to use flashcards or other online resources.
