Establishing a Love of Math Prodigy was created for one reason: To help ALL students to LOVE learning math
Prodigy Prodigy is an adaptive video-game that’s fully aligned to Ontario’s Curriculum for Grades 1-8 – 100% of the Educational Content is FREE
Playing for the First Time Prodigy adapts to keep students in their Zone of Proximal Development, while children feel like they’re just playing a video game Youtube:
In-game Math Supports All questions can be read aloud Hints and lessons Virtual manipulatives Youtube:
Real-Time Reporting Track strands, expectations, and skills for each one of your students Assess, differentiate & close gaps in real-time Youtube:
Assignments Control exactly what math content your students see in-game, without them knowing – Diagnostic or Formative assessment Youtube:
Results: Change in Attitudes After 6 weeks on Prodigy, classes surveyed observed a: 23% increase in students stating they “like” or “love” math 19% increase in students indicating math did not make them feel nervous
Results: Phenomenal Engagement For every 1 minute a child uses Prodigy at school, the average child spends an additional 1.5 minutes at home, voluntarily
Using Prodigy for Best Results We recommend minutes of in-school play per week (one lab period) for best results. On average, this results in an additional minutes of voluntary play at home, for free!
EQAO Prodigy is a great support tool for EQAO – Free “Ontario EQAO 3” & “Ontario EQAO 6” curricula – In-game diagnostic test for each student Problem areas/gaps are reported in real time

What Teachers are Saying “My students have grown to enjoy math more and more this year, and Prodigy has been a big part of that. They are experiencing success while completing much needed practice of basic math facts - which has directly led to higher confidence and risk taking with higher order thinking problems that I present to them in class.” -Maria Tersigni-Wishart, Teacher, HWDSB
