Frax and Reflex: Better Together
Educational math games for learning math facts and fractions
Break through the barriers to learning math
Math facts and fractions are two areas where young math students struggle the most. Unfortunately, they are also the strongest indicators of future success in math—uniquely predicting students’ standardized test scores and participation in career and college-prep math coursework, such as Algebra.
That’s why at ExploreLearning we’re focused on the factors that make the greatest impact on student success in math. Reflex (for math facts) and Frax (for fractions) develop this critical knowledge in a way that is both fun and effective. And give students the skills (and confidence) in math they need to take on what comes next!Take a Tour!

Math mastery unleashed: Frax and Reflex boost student achievement
New Research conducted by ExploreLearning finds that elementary students using Reflex (for math facts) and Frax (for fractions) make significantly larger academic gains in math compared to non-users. From fall to spring i-Ready assessments, Reflex and Frax helped students:
Meet or exceed math growth goals
- Were 60% more likely to meet or exceed typical growth goals
- Were 100% more likely to meet or exceed stretch goals
See significant gains, even when at risk
- Made significantly larger score gains regardless of starting achievement level
- Saw greater stretch goal gains, with at-risk students 3x more likely to meet goals
Solve the math fact fluency problem with ExploreLearning Reflex!
Reflex is the most fun and effective way to get students math fact fluent and ready for more complex math.
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 missions in Frax Sector 1. 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
