Summer Learning!

Dear Parent/Guardian:

Make sure your child doesn’t lose learning during the summer! Prodigy has partnered with us to host an online AUSD Summer Math Tournament. What is Prodigy?

Prodigy is a free to use, K-8 curriculum-aligned, adaptive, online, RPG (Role Playing Game) MATH video game. Join 600,000 parents and over 28 million registered students throughout 2800+ school districts in using the game that will revolutionize the way your child learns math.

Featuring over 50,000 questions spanning Grades 1-8 in 6 different curricula, players will get to watch their own wizard grow stronger, learn new spells and acquire new equipment while facing ever more powerful opponents, all by answering math questions.

Create a FREE parent account, and your dashboard will provide you an overview of your child's use, the grade level they're currently working at, the number of questions they’ve answered, performance by math topic, and grade mastery). As a parent, you can even reward your child within Prodigy for achieving personalized goals!
