Who: Teachers looking to engage students in Common Core Math curriculum.
How: Prodigy Math works on any web connected device. Teachers create an account for themselves, then create students accounts. Teachers then can create assignments by selected the Common Core standard they are covering. Students log in and create their character, learn how to play, and start playing. Students battle with other characters and can only attack when they answer correctly. Prodigy gathers data from the answers to report back to the teacher. Student achievement and target areas of growth are displayed for teachers.
When: Prodigy math is perfect for enrichment, station work, or even as homework. As long as there is a web connected device, students can play the game.
The interface to Prodigy is user-friendly. Teachers can be up and running with their first assignment in ten minutes or less. While the game is free, students will be informed that they will level up quicker with a premium account.
According to Prodigy:
“for every minute a child uses Prodigy at school, the average student will spend an additional 1.5 minutes at home, voluntarily! That’s 150% more practice, without using up any extra time at school.”
