Early last Friday morning, a strange treasure chest appeared outside the Delaunay classroom door, surrounded by a swarm of sea gulls.

Captain McNerney and Captain Ruskin dragged the heavy chest inside and revealed its contents to the excited children.

It seems that Captain Hook had sent a message in a bottle, asking for help in dividing his loot among his crew. He insisted that Delaunay class use their knowledge of fractions to solve challenging questions with their partner.
