Too Cool to Categorize

A free, adaptive math game for grades 1-8 that integrates Common Core math into a role-playing game using a Pokemon-style wizardry theme. Students complete math questions to level up (become more powerful) and ultimately defeat Prodigy Crios, Prodigy’s main antagonist.

 

Based on the student’s profile and an invisible diagnostic run during the preliminary tutorial, students are placed at a math level. As they play, question difficulty is increased or decreased depending upon their answers and facility with the skills. If a student struggles with a concept, following questions will backfill the necessary skills.

 

As the student works through the math problems, many lessons (but not all) include virtual manipulatives to help solve the problem: These include a speaker to say the question, a hint button to provide help, detail on the required skill, and a drawing tool to work through the answer. These encourage students to build their own problem solutions in a way that works for them rather than relying on a teacher or parent.
