Matific, the popular one maths resource for primary school students, has won two awards at the International SIIA CODiE Awards in San Francisco, for Best Mathematics Instructional Solution and Best Game-Based Curriculum Solution. Matific was also a finalist in the category of Best Learning Capacity-Building Solution.
