Matific takes a unique approach to teaching K to 6 math using hands-on and interactive mini-games, called episodes. These immersive bite-sized apps for tablets and personal computers are based on a modular and progressive spiral learning system.

Our extensive portfolio of hundreds of activities and worksheets are entirely curriculum-driven. The richly indexed activities and worksheets were developed to easily facilitate mapping onto popular textbooks and standard math curricula.

Matific is a fantastic tool for teaching math intuitively and introducing children to scientific thinking. Prof. Aaron Ciechanover, Nobel Prize Winner
The Matific approach was designed to provide optimal support for educators to convey math concepts in as effective and engaging manner as possible. Matific episodes enable a blended learning approach.Having selected the relevant episodes, teachers can seamlessly integrate hands-on math explorations into their own class learning format.

Progressing from fundamental math objectives to increasingly challenging activities, the Matific learning system encourages children to internalize mathematical insights and rules. A process of guided self discovery deepens student cognitive understanding, as well as a sense of personal achievement.

At Matific we understand the importance of transparent tracking and analytics capabilities. The system features an intuitive reporting system that monitors progress and provides real-time and periodical status reports at both the class and student level.
