Looking for a real-world example of the complicated math concept you’re teaching? There’s an app for that in the Clever Library. Matific is a math learning app that provides K-6 students with playful interaction and inquiry-based math activities. The virtual scenarios in the Matific app help students develop conceptual understanding, problem-solving and critical thinking skills in tandem with teachers’ math lessons.

Designed by early-age math education experts, the award-winning Matific program is based on math teaching and research. This math learning app is endorsed by elementary school teachers and principals around the world and is available in more than 40 languages.

Why students love Matific

Matific creates practical, virtual scenarios that allow students the opportunity to manipulate virtual objects in a way that bridges abstract math concepts taught in the classroom and the events that kids experience in the real world. It is this real-world relatability that springboards the conceptual part of math learning. See examples here.
