Matific Galaxy is an online learning program for grades K-6 that will engage children with math games. Children will learn at their own pace while problem solving through games.
My incoming 6th grader has been enjoying playing Matific Galaxy on her iPad over the past weeks. She does NOT LIKE MATH and has surprisingly enjoyed playing the various math games as she has leveled up on Matific Galaxy. There are ten levels in the 6th grade pack. Within each level there are levels. You must complete games (lessons) within each section in order to unlock and advance to the next level. Each game earns the student pixels which helps to fill in the character. For example,
Dusty is the first character.
This is Kai, the second character, in it pixilated form.
Here are more of the characters as the student levels up.
Math skills taught in the 6th grade level.
I was impressed with the amount of concepts covered.
There are 46 skills in total that encompass the 6th grade level.
In this particular game students get to design their own cell phone case.
They have to mix colors by dividing the various colors using fractions.
Students are rewarded with a screen full of stars for correct answers.
Here my daughter is working out the problems on paper.
In the end they have designed their own cell phone case.
Here is another another game example.
All of the games are very engaging. Students are rewarded visually as well as in written form with words such as, "You can do it my friend." Students can earn trophies and metals for their achievements. Within the Parent Zone you can keep track of your students progress and see exactly how they are performing along the way. The report will give you an Overall Learning Progression where it will show your child's strong skills as well as the skills that they need practice in. It will also show how many activities you child has completed.
I most definitely would recommend this app. This would be an AWESOME app to download this summer. This is a great way to keep up math skills over the summer. Chances are you children will not even realize that they are doing math. I have been very impressed with the app and will continue to use this app with my daughter throughout the summer and into the upcoming school year.
