Expert Corner: Making the Case for Math Fact Fluency
Featuring David Shuster, Ph.D.,
Math fact fluency is the quick and effortless (automatic) recall of basic math facts. Research shows that, just like students who are weak in conceptual understanding, students who are not fluent with their basic math facts have major challenges mastering more advanced mathematical skills.
Based on this research, the NCTM, National Math Advisory Panel, and other major educational organizations highlight math fact fluency as a central pillar of every student's mathematics education.
The problem is that worksheets and flash cards just don't work for a lot of students because they aren't individualized. They don't adapt to what students know and don't know and can't create a customized approach for every child.
We wanted to solve this problem. So after years of work, we are thrilled to be able to finally unveil Reflex. Extremely effective and a whole lot of fun, Reflex is truly a next-generation solution for math fact fluency. Please give it a try and let us know what you think. As with Gizmos, we will always be looking to improve what we're doing.
