MATHS-MADE-EASY WEB SITE SCOOPS RTS AWARD

 

A children’s web site featuring fun maths games and designed by a graduate of the Hull School of Art and Design has won a Royal Television Society Award.

 

The ‘Puzzle Maths’ site designed and built for Double Exposure and Channel 4 features four games designed by Mike Rigley, who graduated from the University of Lincolnshire & Humberside last year.

 

The site earned Mike’s company, Cimex Media Ltd, an RTS award in the ‘Schools Television: Primary and Secondary Multimedia and Interactive’ category.

 

Mike (26), who comes from Castle Donington in Derbyshire, graduated last July with a first-class honours degree in Interactive Multimedia.

 

He and his fellow students were the first cohort to complete the new degree, which is taught at the Queens Gardens campus in Hull city centre.

 

“I’m really happy that Cimex has won this award,” said Mike, who was responsible for the programming, layout and games play on the site. “I joined the company seven months ago and this was one of my first projects, so we’re delighted.”

 

‘Puzzle Maths’ is based on the Channel Four educational programme of the same name and aims to improve the maths skills of primary and younger secondary school pupils.

 

London-based Cimex develops internet sites, extranets and intranets, enhanced and interactive TV, interactive kiosks, mobile technologies and DVD and CD-ROM.
