ExploreLearning is an online, game-based program that helps students increase math fact fluency. The $1,600 great includes 35 student log-ins for one calendar year. Because Reflex is based online, Brinkel’s fourth graders are able to continue their math facts fun at home as well, as each parent has received login instructions.

“Fact fluency helps build confident in all other areas of math,” said Brinkel. “So, this program will be a great additional resource!”

Students begin with addition and subtraction, working their way towards being fluent in all facts less than 100. Once students master addition and subtraction, they continue the program with multiplication and division.

In total, there are seven games each student can choose from, with each having the ability to play as many as they want each day.
