CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va., April 14, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- ExploreLearning, a business unit of Cambium Learning Group, Inc. (Nasdaq: ABCD), announced today the launch of Reflex, a revolutionary new online product for the development of math fact fluency. The launch of ExploreLearning Reflex coincides with the opening of the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) Annual Meeting and Exposition in Indianapolis, Indiana. Throughout the conference, ExploreLearning will be conducting presenter-led and hands-on demonstrations of Reflex at their booth to many of the 10,000 mathematics educators in attendance.
ExploreLearning Reflex is a next generation solution for math fact fluency development that combines research-proven methods with innovative technology. Math fact fluency is the quick and effortless (automatic) recall of basic math facts. Reflex efficiently moves students to fluency by continuously adapting and individualizing instruction, creating an optimal experience for every student. The program also provides educators with intuitive and powerful reporting that helps them effectively monitor and support student progress. For students, Reflex utilizes engaging, fast-paced games and rewards for effort and progress, creating a compelling, motivational environment.
David Shuster, Ph.D., Founder and Publisher of ExploreLearning, adds that "research shows that math fact fluency is critical to future success in mathematics. Topics from computing with fractions to solving algebraic equations become extremely difficult for students who struggle with their math facts. That's why the NCTM, the National Math Advisory Panel, and the What Works Clearinghouse all cite the quick and effortless recall of math facts as one of the top priorities of elementary mathematics education. With Reflex, our goal was to develop a truly 21st century solution that is much more effective (and much more fun) than anything than has come before it. After years of work, we are thrilled to be launching Reflex this week at NCTM."
ExploreLearning develops online solutions to improve student learning in math and science. ExploreLearning currently has two products: ExploreLearning Gizmos, the world's largest library of interactive, online simulations for math and science in grades 3-12; and Reflex, the most powerful solution available for math fact fluency development. Gizmos and Reflex bring research-proven instructional strategies to classrooms around the world. ExploreLearning is a Charlottesville, VA-based business unit of Cambium Learning Group, Inc. [Nasdaq:ABCD] based in Dallas, TX. For more information about Gizmos, please visit http://www.explorelearning.com. For more information about Reflex, please visit http://www.reflexmath.com.
