A new way to master math skills

With Focus Mode, teachers boost the amount of time spent answering math questions in Prodigy, encourage student mastery and build a growth mindset in students. 

Here’s how:

When teachers turn on Focus Mode, students are instantly transported to Tower Town, an exciting new Prodigy world. There, they build towers that represent skill growth — earning decorations and flexing their creative muscles.  

Tower Town gives students the opportunity to focus on answering questions and developing key skills. When Focus Mode is enabled, students are only able to work in Tower Town, and in-game socializing with other players is turned off. While every student can access Tower Town at home and at school, only Focus Mode keeps them there and encourages them to answer more math questions.

When teachers set up in-game Assignments, Plans or Test Preps, students get the chance to work on Infinity Tower: a never-ending, endlessly customizable tower that stretches up into the sky. This helps them complete assessments and master key skills faster. 

What makes Focus Mode different?

Focus Mode gives students a whole new way to experience Prodigy! Here’s how it changes the way students play:
