Turn Your Kids Into Math Prodigies: Prodigy Math Game

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Prodigy is a free, Common Core-based math game in which students enter a magical, online world. They use their self-created avatar to move throughout different worlds to interact with and battle other players, much like World of Warcraft. During each battle, students complete math problems that stem from the Common Core math standard the teacher has assigned. Teachers are able to assign any Common Core standard from the grade level they choose. As students complete their assignments, the teacher is able to track their data on each topic.​​ When students have completed all assigned problems, they return to their individual leveled practice.
