Introduction to Reflex and Frax
Audience: Math Teachers | Prerequisite: N/A
About the Workshop
The Introduction to Reflex and Frax workshop is designed to enable a teacher to immediately get students up and running with Reflex and Frax, monitor progress, and coach students towards fluency in math facts and conceptual understanding in fractions. First, there will be a segment discussing math fact fluency and its importance to student achievement in math. Then teachers learn the importance of each of the three sections of a typical Reflex student session. During the Frax section, teachers will see a sample Frax Mission and identify the pedagogical methodologies used. Finally, they will learn to manage student accounts and review the individual and group reports. Teachers will gain a good understanding of how to support the students using the programs, including the use of classroom activities.

Everybody's Talking About Frax
“Frax is by far the best program I have seen for fractions. Even the kids who experience math challenges seem to ‘get’ fractions. Now, when any fraction related math comes up in our lessons, they all seem to know the correct answer!”- Frax Teacher, Cloquet Independent School District 94, MN
"I use Frax in my classes. On our mid-year screener, my students outperformed the other 3rd grade classes that don’t use Frax. My two classes’ average point increase was double that of the other five classes."- Frax Teacher, Liberty Hill Independent School District, TX
"My kids absolutely love Frax! Their abilities vary, but ALL my students feel success with Frax. They have a much better grasp on fractions overall and it has really made a difference in what we are able to do in class."- Frax Teacher, Redwood Preparatory Charter School, CA
"My students are super sad that there are only 27 Frax missions. They are literally begging to do more fraction work! One student who usually struggles with math concepts completed all of the missions and is now getting A’s in math instead of C’s."- Frax Teacher, Greenville Co School District, SC
"My students LOVE Frax! They now regularly say things like ‘Well I know that 1/4 + 1/4 = 1/2...’ or ‘I know that 3/6 = 1/2...’, which were not things they were saying before working on Frax. The improvement in their fraction fluency has been noticeable."- Frax Teacher, Governor Wentworth Regional School District, NH
