Gizmos & Reflex Math

Blackwell has been selected for the 2019 - 2020 ExploreLearning Focus school program!

Richmond leaders want to harness the power of ExploreLearning Gizmos and Reflex to help teachers provide instruction that is engaging and rigorous to students in grades 2-12. Six focus schools have been identified that will receive prescribed support in the form of professional development and curriculum integration for Gizmos and Reflex. This collaboration between the ExploreLearning Professional Development team, Richmond Public Schools administrators, and focus school teachers and administrators will allow these schools to serve as exemplary implementations for other Richmond schools in subsequent years.

Reflex Math

Reflex Math is designed for students in grades 1-5. If you do not have a Reflex Math account, please click on the button below!


What is Reflex Math? Reflex Math builds math fact fluency, which is essential to success in mathematics. Kids gain fluency by learning "fact families," in which they focus on a set of facts for a group of numbers. Subtraction and addition are paired and taught together. Similarly, multiplication and division facts are taught as a family.
