About the Project

Fraction Quest has been created by a team of academics and game developers from across Europe. 

Funded by the European Union, Fraction Quest combines games-based learning (GBL) pedagogy with content language integrated learning (CLIL). 

The broader aim of the project is to map the experiences of practitioners and students to inform classroom practice in three key areas: Mathematics, Languages and GBL. 

We hope to demonstrate how practitioners might use GBL as a vehicle to promote increased conceptual understanding in mathematics, whilst providing a meaningful and purposeful context for students to engage with the language of classroom instruction.
