The Prodigy Maths Game is clearly very much a games world ,where games covers many mathematical concepts.
“With 1,500+ curriculum-aligned math skills for 1st to 8th grade, it’s so much more than a game. Prodigy is an engaging game-based learning platform that’s dedicated to improving students’ confidence and achievements in math.” (Prodigy)
It is all in a game world and children seem to fight dragons, make spells and partake of fantasy inspired adventures. It will no doubt inspire some players, I imagine it is very exciting.
NB The games are provided freely, but, the aim of the site is to get parents or schools to sign up to the paid for version as there are prizes, quicker levelling up, exclusive gear, member only items and rewards – and so much more. See below:
- “They’ll love learning math. Your child will enjoy practicing math at home while they explore a fantasy world packed with action and adventure.
- We’ll support them where they are. Prodigy Math Game’s adaptive algorithm matches your child’s learning style and grade level.
- Stay safe and private. We keep your child’s data safe. Players communicate through pre-written messages, and we’ll never share personal information.
- Always accessible. All in-game math content is free for students and schools. ” (Prodigy)
The Prodigy maths game sounds wonderful; however, I have not played any of the games. I feel that it might be hard for children who only have access to the free account, playing and not getting the extras that premium players get. There is so much on offer for premium players and for some people it will be worth looking at, others will steer clear. At about £5 per month it may be worth paying just for 2 months to cover the summer, if the children love it that much.
