Cyberchase Fractions Quest
2017 to 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.
