While students are enjoying the game, teachers are gathering valuable data that shows what math skills their students already have and where they need to improve. As a teacher, you can assign specific questions and content to your students so that the skills they practice while playing the game are aligned to the skills you are focusing on in class. Watch student engagement and skill increase in leaps and bounds as you use Prodigy in your classroom or at home. *You will need a free Prodigy account for this project.
