Math Fluency Practice:

Students who want to become faster at basic math, can request access to the Reflex math program. The program is on a website that can be accessed wherever there is an internet connection. Reflex uses games to help students practice their math facts, thereby building their math fluency. For example students will be able to quickly answer math facts like 5 x 6 and 17 - 9. The program is only available to 30 students so first come, first served.
