Interactive Maths with Matific

There’s no denying that, however difficult many of us find it, maths remains an integral part of our education system, right across the globe. I consider myself very lucky that right now, at 5 and 6, the girls adore maths and their hunger to learn is admirable. I really want to take advantage of that while they are still young and using on-line maths programmes is a great way of doing exactly that.

Recently we were introduced to Matific, an award winning online maths programme fully aligned to the primary school maths curriculum. From reception right through to year 6, there is an app for each year level which is tailored to be age appropriate for children to work at their own pace.

Available on all Android and iOS devices, we downloaded it onto the children’s iPads and they couldn’t wait to get started!

The programme is really impressive with hundreds of fun, engaging and interactive games available to really boost maths confidence. The idea is to play mini-games which focus on concepts such as addition, subtraction, geometry, fractions and multiplication. With every task they complete they are rewarded with trophies which is something my children thrive on!

The girls particularly loved taking part in Matific activities and I loved seeing their confidence growing. Eva is incredibly advanced with her maths work and yet due to maths anxiety this doesn’t always come across in her school work. I found that Matific really helped her with that anxiety and with every trophy she was rewarded with, her confidence grew and grew.

I love that comprehensive reports provide valuable insights for parents on their child’s progress and achievements so it was clear to see the areas they are flourishing in and the ones they need a little extra help with.

With Matific activities proven to improve maths test scores by a whopping 34% I will definitely be continuing with the programme and encouraging Harry to begin on the beginners level when he starts school this September.

Matific is also available for use in schools which I think is an amazing idea. Maths can often be deemed as ‘boring’ to young children and I think its so important to make sure that learning is fun, which is why the use of programmes such as this are paramount. Matific would also be the perfect resource for home-schooling too.

We are so impressed with Matific and will be continuing to use it to help the children with their maths skills as they grow. You can find out more over on the website here.

    Tigger loves Maths, it’s his favourite subject – however, as a parent I struggle to find appropriate challenges for him to complete at home. I’ll have to check this out as it would really help with his home learning

    Getting kids ready and learning math is a great idea and the earlier the better. My kids are a little older but I wish this was around when my kids were starting out in school.

    This looks like something my son would enjoy. Gaming plus math is right up his alley.

    It was always difficult to get my children interested in math. Matific looks like it has wonderful interactive activities for kids to play and learn. It’s nice to know that it will grow with your child, too!

    Any time you can get girls to interact with math, that makes it a win in my house! It looks like a durable product, too. That’s important to me.

    My son learned math on something like this. It was so colorful that it kept his attention – much like this one. Those girls are so darling too!!

    I used to love maths when I was at school and now enjoy it, even more, this is a lovely tool to have.

    It is easy to have a block when it comes to Maths, but this looks colourful and quite engaging, even for parents trying to assist and encourage. I’ll see how my boy gets on in P1 (he’s just started!) and take it from there.

    They have so much cooler things for learning products than they had when I was a child. It’s a whole new world out there. I love the bright and vivid colors. And its so great it helps with Math.

    This looks like fun – my kids love maths (luckily) and Isaac and Eliza have both won awards with school for mathletics. This app looks perfect for Seb

    Oh this looks like a great app, Lucas really enjoys his educational apps so will look at this when he’s older

  19. August 28, 2018 / 3:50 pm

    What a fun and educational way to keep the kids entertained! Love how excited the little ones are about it.

  20. August 28, 2018 / 5:39 pm

    This is quite an interesting way to teach kids to love maths, I’m going to try it out with my niece and nephew who always seem addicted to their tablets.

    Oooh, this looks like just the thing to help Seren. She struggles with maths… so this really would be useful! Your girls look like they are thoroughly enjoying it too.
