Teacher Review

Prodigy Math Game is a free, self-paced math game that is curriculum-aligned for grades 1-8. As players compete in math duels against in-game characters, it borrows elements from role-playing games (RPGs) such as Pokemon. To win, they must answer sets of questions.

Why Prodigy Math Game is great for teachers

As a teacher, you can customize these questions to supplement class material. The maths game also uses adaptive learning and differentiated instruction principles to adjust content, addressing each student’s trouble spots.

Prodigy Math Game also features powerful and immediate reporting tools for both teachers and parents. From Progress Reports to Usage Reports and more, use your student or child’s data to identify where they’re excelling or struggling so you can customize the content in game for them. 

Why we love Prodigy Math Game

Kids can learn about and practice essential math skills, which are dependent on the grade level selected at the start of the game. For example, first-graders practice comparing and ordering two-digit numbers, adding to 20, using place value through tens, and much more. Eighth-graders work with linear expressions, equations, functions, irrational numbers, and more. The game aligns with various curricula, hitting Common Core math standards and Texas and Florida state standards.

One of the more favorable features of the game from a learning perspective is the automatic differentiation. Math questions are generated based on previous performance. And, when kids get something wrong, instructional feedback is provided. Although the gaming aspect can be quite engaging for many kids, sometimes the math gets a little lost. A lot of time can pass between skills questions, and the focus is often on earning coins, treasures, pets, and other rewards. If kids are able to wade through all of that, they can get plenty of math practice when they aren't battling monsters and completing quests.
