As we enter this school year, there's probably a lot running through your mind. And helping your child succeed academically to overcome the summer slide likely feels quite daunting.
That’s why we make it easy for you to engage your child with math, so they actually want to learn more.
We wanted to make Prodigy Math Game extra fun all year round to promote a growth mindset and help students become lifelong learners. That’s where our special events, videos and in-game features come in. They make the game even more fun and keep your child extra excited to play (and answer more math questions, of course).
Here are some things your child can look forward to this year!
Throughout the year, our themed events bring some festive fun to the Prodigy world.
Each one offers exclusive items, gear and more that players can only get while the festival is happening.
To access these special items, players participate in battles against other characters, where they'll answer math questions to win. Your child should make sure to play lots of Prodigy during each festival if they want new loot for their characters!
Encourage them to join the festivities and let them know what’s coming up in their Prodigy calendars. You can even start a countdown for each one to bring the excitement up a notch!
Encourage your child to log in and enjoy each festival as it comes. Then, use the information in your parent account to see where they’re excelling and where they need more support.
Festivals to look out for this year
1. Fall — Pumpkinfest
3. Spring— Springfest; Twilight Festival
4. Summer — Summerfest
P.S. Keep an eye out for Starlight Festival. It's the only time players can get new starter pets without starting a new account. Considering how adorable they are, this is definitely something your child won't want to miss!
Make sure your math wizards are ready for this one. The Harmony Island Rune Run adventure offers players a new way to enjoy the game like they’ve never experienced before!
Players will explore Harmony Island, where they'll:
- Go on mini-adventures to collect Runes
- Use Runes to power up like never before and become extra strong for upcoming math battles
- Find mini-bosses, extra adventures and discover a whole new way to play Prodigy!
If your child has fun exploring Harmony Island, we have something even more exciting for them!
Players may have uncovered the secrets of Harmony Island, but the brand new Arena is a huge update to the original. Now there’s more to uncover, and many more ways to use the powerful Runes they’ve collected.
Prodigy wizards can either go directly to the Arena or teleport from Harmony Island. Once they get there, they'll experience better player vs. player battles and awesome rewards!
Has your child ever wondered what their favorite Prodigy pets are up to while they’re logged off?
Our new video series follows the adventures of the Prodigy Pets as they play, explore and make new friends.
Check out what Charfoal, Mermina, Snowfluff, Sproot and Wott are doing in the Prodigy world!
