Students want "to do math all day long"

"The students are continuing to learn more and more facts and are becoming more confident in math and actually have a desire to do math work all day long. Reflex reinforces and extends what they learn in the classroom and the variety of activities challenges them to keep going. Their ability to increase percentage scores on computer based tests and District benchmark tests helps me to guage their mastery of the skills.

One student entered the classroom not liking school and definitely not liking math. She stopped learning and working after lunch. She is now excelling in math and language arts and no longer pouting and crying after lunch. She is smiling and keeps commenting, 'I'm doing good, I did the work all correct!'"

Reflex comes to the rescue

"I am a math tutor, and over the years I have discovered that most kids that struggle with higher math do so because they do not have good recall of their basic math facts.  If kids don't get these facts while in elementary school, it sets them up for a lifetime of math struggles.  How can a kid be successful in advanced algebra, trig, or calculus if they don't know the building blocks?  There is just too many places to make a mistake if the facts are not fluent. The problem is math moves so fast now that traditional programs do not provide enough practice with math facts. That is where Reflex comes to the rescue. 

My kids (7 and 9) love Reflex. I love that the program is systematic.  It tests the kids with new facts mixed with ones they already know.  This ensures that they learn the new facts without getting overwhelmed. I can see that my kids' recall is improving so much that they are able to complete their regular math assignments more quickly. I cannot speak highly enough about the program."

Students in Special Education have "grown immensely"

"My students came in at the beginning of the school year facing severe challenges in their math facts and with the repetition and the unique way that Reflex presents the math facts, they have grown immensely and are able to transfer their skills into applied problems. Reflex builds the foundation for my students and their math facts so that they are able to access grade-level material successfully. They are able to transfer it to their math learning (i.e., adding and subtracting fractions with unlike denominators, exponents, etc.). Their fluency with their math facts is much quicker than it has ever been."

Reflex inspires student from Haiti to become a more motivated student

"One of my students, a boy who immigrated to the US following the earthquake in Port-au-Prince, had little formal schooling and was often withdrawn during class. In September, he had less than 75 facts mastered. He really enjoyed Reflex, using it during his free time and 30 minutes daily during our math fluency period. In January, after only 4 months using Reflex, he reached 100% mastery. I think that this experience helped him to develop more confidence and I moved him to a more advanced work group where he has a lot of interaction with other motivated students."

Student with Autism has tripled her fluency

"Students who have been using Reflex consistently have shown fast progress. When the facts become fluent, our students, most who are English Language Learners, can focus their cognitive energy on problem solving and attend more closely to the question being asked. 

One second grade student with a diagnosis of Autism, had been through multiple training methods for basic addition and subtraction facts including base 10 blocks, touch math, number lines, manipulatives etc. Nothing seemed to help her increase fluency or retention. After a month using Reflex even less than suggested, she has more than tripled her fluency and has gained over 40 fluent facts."

Student math computation scores went up

"If we can get all students to have fact fluency, we can dive deeper into math learning at all levels. Reflex has significantly increased my students math fact fluency and helped to create a flow to my math lessons. I no longer have to wait for students to count on their fingers for simple math facts...they just know them.

All 17 students in my class, even those who receive special education services for math, are at least at 60% fluency. In Math Computation, when compared with the national norm, 13 of my 17 students are average or above (in the fall only 11 were), and 4 of my students scored either above average or well above average (in the fall only 2 were). All of the students who scored well below average or below average significantly improved their score 11 to 14 more points."

Reflex gets kids excited about math

"I think the best part about Reflex is seeing the kids get excited about practicing math facts. One of my struggling students use to beg me to let him use pencil and paper to help him remember the fact families that they have to type in during the practice part. I urged him to keep trying and that he could do it. Just this past week he came up to me grinning and asking for hug because he had remembered one of the fact families on his first try. Reflex gets students excited and gives them confidence."

After using Reflex for 6 weeks, she is 80% fluent. She gained confidence because she knew the addition and subtraction facts. She is now fully engaged in our class discussions because she quickly and easily solves the problems. She is now focused on the process of solving problems and solving more challenging problems. In the beginning of the year, I was worried about her but now she is my star student."

"Reflex is fantastic! Reflex has enabled my struggling students to build their much needed fact fluency. These students are the least motivated and challenged in mathematics, so this has helped motivate and build their self-esteem while building their knowledge of basic facts. One student, who is identified as LD, has already reached 100% fluency in addition and subtraction and has now progress to almost 60% fluency in multiplication and division. This is amazing. She enjoys coming to math and has such confidence that she smiles during math class. She is even taking on and tackling harder problem solving questions now that simple facts are not a barrier for her."

With CCSS "it is imperative that students develop fact fluency"

"One of my most struggling students was really successful with Reflex and now 'loves' math! The program gave him the confidence to try other things. I have seen a great increase with several students based on classroom observations, end of unit assessments and state practice exams. I attribute part of this success to Reflex. 

Due to the high standards of the Common Core, It is imperative that students develop fact fluency. In order to keep up with the rigorous demand, students need to use all of their mental energy solving problems. With fact automaticity, students will be able to focus more time and attention to the application instead of process. Many of my students enter 3rd grade lacking fluency with addition and subtraction and are now expected to develop multiplication and division fluency. To get kids ready for the demands set forth by the Common Core, we need to help them catch up and excel in terms of fluency."

This was an increase from 50% of my students scoring within the targeted norm range on the fall assessment. Reflex has not only helped my students gain fluency, but also master higher level math concepts due to not having to spend as much time solving facts. Scores on both calcuations and math application and concepts probes have increased greatly since using Reflex."

Reflex helps students solve Common Core word problems

"When my class first began using Reflex, the students were working on solving two-digit addition problems. Completing the test took FOREVER (many students needed more than the alloted hour). A few weeks ago, the students completed a three-digit addition with regrouping test. I had stepped out of the classroom for about ten minutes and the sub was passing out the test as I left the room. Upon returning to the class, I questioned the sub why students were on the computer instead of taking the test. She told me they were finished! Not only had the students completed the test, the majority of the class had received very good scores.

Reflex is a tool that helps my students be more successful in math because it helps increase their confidence in being able to solve mathematics problems. Reflex also helps students solve the more complicated and involved Common Core word problems. When students don't have to utilize any effort or energy determining what 8 + 4 or 8 - 4 is they are able to focus on what the problem is asking and requiring."

"Increased confidence" is "the greatest success" in the classroom

"The increased confidence in math has been the greatest success in my classroom. I had one student who started the year working on grade 1 level math. She is now working at her grade level (grade 3). We score our students based on a math continuum designed by our school division and some of my students have jumped "sign posts" or developmental stages.

We recently had a school district meeting where the high schools in our catchment area asked the middle and elementary schools to meet and discuss math. Their major concern was the lack of fact fluency in grade 9 students. The high schools felt they were teaching grade 3 and 4 math skills to high school students. I believe a program like Reflex could help us meet the needs of our students now (in elementary schools) so they don't struggle in high school."

What is more, my students love the program. They beg me to get on it every day.

She was not excited to participate in this program, as I believe she has been in many math intervention programs with little success. However, she quickly took to Reflex and her fact fluency scores began to climb. One day we were solving a problem in class and she raised her hand to answer the question. I quickly chose her to respond. As she explained her answer, I asked her how she know how to solve this. In her explanation, she simply responded, 'I learned it in Reflex.' At that point, I knew the time she was spending on the fact fluency practice was improving her confidence."

Reflex fosters "a positive math outlook"

"I like how Reflex has given all my students a sense of accomplishment. I have many students who struggle with confidence and perseverance in math. Reflex is fostering a positive math outlook that I find transfers to the concepts we are currently working on. They are all so excited about Reflex. Students are showing improvement as they are moving through the program. Their fluency is improving. I notice as students are completing pen and paper basic fact math activities that they are faster and more accurate."

Several students "have come alive with this program"

"There have several students who have come alive with this program. One of them would not do his work. He would say, 'It is too hard!' After learning his math facts, he does not get slowed down by drawing arrays. He can now focus on the concept or the word problem. Now it is not so 'hard' for him. He really took to the program and learned without having to make him do his work. Our STAAR® benchmark tests have had higher scores this year at this point, then in previous years. I attribute a part of that to the Reflex program."

"Reflex is the most engaging fact fluency builder"

"Reflex is the most engaging fact fluency builder I have worked with in 26 years of teaching. Multiplication fact fluency is a key building block for many other math skills like fractions, calculating area, volume and division. Students are monitoring their fluency pyramids several times a week. It drives them to keep practicing and growing their skills."

Reflex helps students prepare for Algebra

"All students have made gains. When students know their basic facts they can work much more efficiently. In addition, there are some concepts that you cannot master if you do not know you basic facts. We are doing an Algebra chapter in math right now. We were going over a problem together and I asked a basic facts question. One student confidently answered the question immediately. When others looked at him, surprised, he said, 'Reflex.'"

Reflex "allows all students to experience success"

"What I like about Reflex is that it allows all students to experience success. I have a strong math student who has worked 4-5 times a week and is almost through the program. She feels great that she knows her facts well. I also have students with math anxiety, low achievement, and low confidence who are also being successful through the program. They realize they can be successful and as we are starting double digit multiplication, they are not relying on a multiplication chart. It sets the foundation for more complicated math concepts such as measurement and division."

Student with Autism says math "is his favorite subject" now

"I am seeing positive progress with students that are using the program. I have a student with Autism that could not identify fact families prior to using Reflex. He is now at 80% fluent with addition and subtraction facts. Before Reflex he did not like math. He now states that it is his favorite subject."
