Matific is a fantastic website for K-6 students. It’s part virtual math manipulative, part math game, and part personal math instruction. Right now, your school can join the Matific Math games and win cash and prizes as your students learn math. It’s FREE, and they’ll help you set it up. In this post, I’ll share about the Matific Math games, how to get started, and why Matific is so awesome.

What Is Matific?

The NCTM (National Council of Teachers of Mathematics) highly recommends the use of manipulatives in the math classroom and the Matific site is full of virtual math manipulatives. So, while these activities are gamified, students are learning by interacting with and manipulating objects.

Along with being able to set multiple languages, each student can work at their own level through a personal playlist set by the teacher.

And right now, you can sign up free to participate in the Matific Games.

How Do the Matific Games Work?

Sign up for the games. The people at Matific can set you up within 24 hours or help you use Matific with Clever. You can join from right now through February 20th.

February 14-20 is the warm up. This lets you practice, get your students into Matific, and get set up.

Then, from February 21-28, your US school and your K-6 students can play the games. Over $50,000 in cash and prizes will be awarded as students and classrooms collect stars.

The goal is to finish with the highest average number of stars collected.

This is the perfect time of year for these games and activities as you prepare students to level up in math.

Check out the Matific site for their strict privacy policies. While you’re there, sign up to get your free access to Matific for the games.

Tips to Get the Most Out of Matific


  1. Browse by standards

Each student can have a customized playlist. Browse by standards so that you can customize what students need. This means that while your class is playing the Matific games, you’re working on those standards that you need to cover and addressing concepts that might be struggling with right now.

2. Easily Assign Tasks

Simply assign students their virtual math manipulatives activities with a click.

 

3. Track Students’ Progress With Performance Reports

You can understand how students are doing and get feedback by running snapshot reports. This is how you can make sure that your students are progressing and how you can determine whether to assign more content to help them progress through the game. You’ll want to keep an eye on these reports every day while you’re playing the game.

Check out Matific and join the games! What a fun thing to do in February to promote math  learning. Thank you in advance for telling your friends!
