Is Matific easy to use?

Upon opening the Matific app, the user is greeted with a splash screen for Matific app whilst the app loads. We did note that there was a fair amount of lag when loading the application this is mainly due to the vast amount of content. Matific app is available in a number of different languages and the content can be tailored for different age groups and curriculum systems.

To register as a parent, you are required to enter an email as well as D.O.B. Once you have logged in you can access the account on your device or on-line. We recommend that you do this. You can pre-load the applications activities whilst you are logging on to save download time.

Once into the main menu the Matific app for schools has a logout feature in the top right. The Matific Student app is split into three sections; schoolwork, homework and more.

How does Matific help improve math skills?

The Schoolwork menu displays a huge array of mathematical activities. Some activities are similar but of varying difficulties. An example of the activities are as follows:

  • Number triangles – here the user is asked to place number values in the number triangle to the required sum. We love the animation and graphics in the Matific and it really enhances the user experience. There are 5 levels within this activity with each activity getting harder. There are also a number of options such as a refresh button, a volume button and a hint button if the user is struggling. If the user fails a number of times, then they are shown the solution. This is great for classroom competition and motivation.
  • Save the Ball – This activity focuses on integers and the number line for positive and negative numbers. There are 6 levels here and the user is asked to place springs along a conveyor belt to bounce a ball into a net. The user will need to work out the number of spaces to bounce whether it be forward (+) or backwards (-). We did find this activity quite challenging and we would question the difficulties of some of the tasks. The users might consider some differentiation here with an added easy, medium or hard level. 
  • Identifying Triangles – Here the user has to identify a range of triangles such as isosceles, acute and obtuse. Once removed from the golf putting green the golf ball will fall into the hole to complete the level. There are 3 levels to complete here. If the user gets an answer incorrect more triangles are added to identify. Clicking the words highlighted in blue will explain the different types of triangles to find.
  • Pour Yourself into – This activity focuses on quantities of liquids and how to end up with a set amount whilst adding and removing water from jars. We found this activity particularly hard and the developers again should consider some differentiation here or further tips. 
  • Arrange Pipes – This activity deals with addition and subtraction to allow water to flow through connected pipes. The pipes can be positioned and rotated to create the connections. Once again we found this quite challenging for the age group.

There are a number of other games available within the Matific app. The homework section allows you to have activities saved or possibly directed by your parent or teacher. The more section provides even more opportunities to play these highly addictive and interactive mathematical puzzles.

Final Thoughts

Matific website has a number of interesting features for the user. The same games are available but in an on-line map adventure. This shows numerous missions where the user can progress throughout the map by completing the puzzles. Once again points and stars are awarded. Users can also collect cards of colourful characters.

Matific is available for free for teachers and parents to download for their students. Matific app also offers parents additional services for purchase.
