“There is no questioning the importance of understanding and becoming fluent in math facts,” said Kevin Briley, CEO of Ascend Education. “It is one important key to a successful math intervention program. Many companies offer programs like Flash Card Math for a fee, but we will continue to offer Flash Card Math free to schools for as long as possible.”
Flash Card Math will be available online 24/7 to students at all schools that choose to sign up. A Flash Card Math app is available at the Apple Store and will soon be available from the Windows store. There is no cost or obligation.
