Cyberchase Fractions Quest
2018 - 2019

In collaboration with FableVision and WNET, and with funding from the Small Business Innovation Research program of the U.S. Department of Education’s Institute for Education Sciences, CCT|EDC is conducting formative research to inform the design and development of Cyberchase Fractions Quest—an immersive fractions game based on the PBS children’s television series, Cyberchase.

Designed for Grades 3 and 4, the game combines a high-stakes Cyberchase story with a research-based approach to fractions learning in which children explore fractions in the contexts of area, set, and the number line. A summative classroom pilot study will evaluate the feasibility, usability, and efficacy of the game and its CCSS-aligned dashboard as a tool for improving fractions teaching and learning in third grade mathematics instruction.
