An effective, curriculum-aligned math practice tool
How Prodigy improves math content
Our entire team of teachers are certified to teach math. Together, they regularly improve content — researching current skills in a given area and ensuring they match curriculum expectations and bridge content gaps.
Using their experience as classroom educators, they develop question hints and video lessons to ensure students receive accessible and appropriate scaffolding and content rigor.
How Prodigy deepens understanding
Prodigy offers 1,500+ math skills ranging from first- to third-level DOK. On the lower end, students practice fluency and knowledge of basic concepts and routine procedures. On the higher end, they interpret and understand what the question is asking.
Educators and parents use Prodigy to help elicit a deeper understanding of the underlying math principles to ensure students don’t just grasp new knowledge — but learn to apply it, too.

15% Higher median standardized test scores
In 3rd grade, high-usage economically disadvantaged students have a 15% higher median STAAR score than the low-usage group.Learn more
Here's what teachers are saying
"Students are most confident because of the extra practice they received with Prodigy. My students typically score higher than others on district screeners and math benchmarks because I am able to individualize and differentiate instruction using the Prodigy reports."
Math Interventionist and 2nd Grade Teacher, Wisconsin
"I've seen a 45% increase in my standardized testing scores thanks to playing at least 25 minutes a day in Prodigy. The bulk of their Prodigy time is in the morning when their mind is still fresh for learning and it also helps them get settled in for the rest of the day's learning."
3rd Grade Teacher, Indiana
"Struggling students love Prodigy. They think they're playing a game, but in reality, they are learning and practicing. Some of my heaviest users of Prodigy have become my best students. There is a positive correlation between Prodigy usage and student performance."
