Imagine your favourite video game as a kid. Now, imagine that game with the math curriculum built into it. That’s Prodigy — the free, adaptive math game. It helps students practice math and learn new skills as they navigate a fantasy world packed with action and adventure.
Each student is a hero here. Students build and control their own wizards, defeat creatures and other players in math battles. The experience stays fresh, as the company regularly creates content and designs mechanics to expand the battle system and invigorate the in-game world.
Adaptivity and Differentiation
The company promises to provide each player with a different experience. It refines algorithms that automatically assess progress, delivering questions that appeal to distinct learning styles while addressing unique skill deficits and trouble spots.
Teachers get granular looks at progress and performance. The reports are designed to quantify and measure everything from the place where students play along with the duration of time to how they perform in assignments (noting down the points where mistakes have been made).
