Don’t forget that Reflex Math is a great online resource for your child to practice their math facts! Once students reach 85% accuracy on their addition and subtraction facts, they will be bumped to multiplication and division. The kids enjoy it, and it is something they can do from home! Login through www.reflexmath.com and the class username is acover.
