I learned about a new (to me) math activity site today called Matific. It is a fun site filled with math activities, lessons, and games for students of K – 6 grades. Matific uses hands-on and interactive games, called episodes, to teach math.
The Matific activities are short and quick. When students answer correctly they are celebrated and when they don’t answer correctly then the students are encouraged to choose a different answer. And even though it’s designed with the individual student in mind, those with interactive white boards could make this a quick, fun activity for your whole class.
Matific not only offers games but it also offers lesson plans as well as worksheets. The goal of Matific is to help teachers teach math concepts in an engaging way, encouraging the seemless integration of technology into the classroom. Teachers can create free Matific accounts for use at school. If there is a desire for the product to be used at home, Matific offers a premium account that allows the at-home use.
The site is definitely worth checking out.
