Reflex helps students of all ability levels to develop fluency with their basic facts in addition, subtraction, multiplication and division.
Math fact fluency is the quick and effortless (automatic) recall of basic math facts. When students achieve automaticity with these facts, they have attained a level of mastery that enables them to retrieve them from long-term memory without conscious effort or attention.
Extensive research has demonstrated the critical role of fact fluency in elementary school level mathematics and beyond and is underscored by studies that show it is a significant predictor of performance on standardized tests.
Furthermore, the significance of fact retrieval speed as a predictor of performance is not limited to test items that directly assess computation — it predicts performance on math concept problems, word problems, data interpretation problems, and mathematical reasoning items as well.
Research over the past decade has also shown, however, that many children in the United States never achieve sufficient proficiency with math facts, and those who do typically achieve it later than their peers in nations with higher mathematics achievement.
