not appropriate for use in schools

Ask your child: "How does this make you feel when you win prizes in this game? How do you feel when you see your friends' loot? How do you feel after you play this?" The in-game advertising uses manipulative techniques to "up-sell" subscriptions and promote non-educational content. This is directed at children in lower grades who are not capable of evaluating these techniques or defending themselves. Most parents do not have the time to monitor and limit this kind of software and its malevolent effects.

This game was unhelpful.

This game is absolutely ridiculous and doesn't teach anything. This game is also pushing REAL LIFE CURRENCY memberships. and the game is completely scrambled. This is a mistake to assign your children/students to this Un educational game.

They won’t stop billing

It is very basic and does have some advantages as a way to get your child / student to do something meaningful that can be tracked while “playing” on a device. However, I would not recommend this company, it has been a nightmare to cancel the membership that has not been used since January 2020. Countless attempts and the 74.95 charge shows up twice a year on my card. It’s absurd I spend time and effort to get cancel and get a refund …then a few months later it’s back on my Amex.

Kids Can't Wait to Play

Prodigy is a great tool to use on a daily basis with my students. They are always asking to play. The students think they are playing and I know they are learning as well. I also love to play along with them too. We have so much fun! There is nothing I dislike.

Engaging math practice for students

I really like how Prodigy engages my students; they would play all day if I’d let them. Prodigy provides access to most of our second grade state standards. I don’t like that membership purchase is needed for students to access some parts. Most families at my school can’t afford the membership cost. Students are disappointed when they can’t win or access a place during game play.

Just as fun as a video game!

I love it. When kids want to go on something where they learn, you can't ask for more than that. The beg their parents for memberships and I often facilitate tournaments where they can face off against each other. I really love it because it meets students where they are at.

Prodigy math is a game changer. The students love it, teachers love it, and parents love it.

I think this is a great teaching tool that can be used in any number of ways (whole group, small group, individual).
