It’s one of the toughest parts of teaching math.

But differentiating instruction for each student is one of the most effective methods of addressing their unique skills deficits.

You can use Prodigy to simplify math content differentiation. You’ll deliver specific in-game problems to each student — or distinct student groups — in three quick steps!

1. Go to your in-account Assessments tool

Visit the Prodigy website and click Login in the top-right corner.

Select a classroom.

Within the classroom, go to the Assessments tool.

A screen will load that allows you to choose curriculum-aligned domains and standards. Although your grade and curriculum are pre-set, you can change them at the top of this screen to deliver foundational or advanced skill practice.

3. Repeat as necessary, differentiating for each student

Repeat this process to deliver specific content to specific students, allowing them to address their trouble spots in Prodigy’s game-based learning environment!

Just be sure to give in-class Prodigy time — perhaps in the form of an entry ticket or learning station — or encourage at-home use.
