This game-based learning app is a fun way for kids to practice essential math skills, depending on the grade level selected at the start of the game.

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.  

Benefits for Students

From a learning perspective, one of the more favourable features of the game is the automatic differentiation. Math questions are generated based on previous performance. And, when kids get something wrong, instructional feedback is provided. Prodigy Game works like a typical online RPG game incorporating command-based combat systems. Gamers can challenge each other in a Pokemon-style magic battle to see who is the better wizard in the world of Prodigy.

While there is a chat function in Prodigy Math, students are able to play offline. Additionally, users cannot share personal information because the chat function only offers predetermined, safe language sentences to be shared between users so parents do not have to fear their children are speaking to strangers onine. 

Benefits for Teachers

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

Prodigy Math Game also features robust and immediate reporting tools for 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. 

Benefits for Parents

Prodigy English and Prodigy Math are both adaptive, engaging, game-based learning platforms designed to help students love learning. 

Bottom Line

The results from their research, alongside our experience of Prodigy, suggest that its game-based approach to learning can positively impact standardized test scores and overall progress. With the right expectations and a bit of help focusing when necessary, Prodigy Math Game can blend adventure and math practice for kids.
