The Game-a-thon challenge involved students using the interface of Prodigy to participate in the math video game competition. With their personal IDs provided by the teachers to each student, they could participate and play using a web browser or the Prodigy App, which is available on both Android and iOS. The math competition challenge saw students unlocking levels and tackling ‘monsters’ by answering math questions. With every question answered, the monster would lose its health. Starting with relatively easy questions, as students proceeded to answer more questions, more levels unlocked that involved students to engage in higher-order thinking questions. Furthermore, winners were chosen based on their participation and the number of questions answered correctly in the 12 days of the competition.

Not only that but Ms Mitali Walvekar ranked 5th amongst the ‘Best Math Teachers.’
