Product Description
Whoa?! Where am I? Last thing I knew I was sitting in math class and now I am on what seems to be a pirate's ship!! I look around the ship and everyone is busy mopping the deck, loading cannons and counting gold coins! In the corner of the ship, I see a treasure chest that says Multiply and Divide.... It looks like there is a series of locks on the chest.... I bet I have to use math in order to open that chest and get back to may math class! I better move quick, before I get caught and have to walk the plank! I have my heading, let's go! Oh no, I am already talking like a pirate, Savvy?! Argh I better move quick!

What is a Breakout? 
A breakout is a scavenger hunt-like game where players use teamwork and critical thinking to solve a series of challenging puzzles in order to open a locked box. Breakouts can be done hands-on with physical locked boxes or digitally using a Google Form. THIS BREAKOUT IS A DIGITAL ONLY BREAKOUT, NO BOXES OR LOCKS NEEDED!

Why Use Breakouts? 
1. Breakouts shift the ownership of learning from the teacher to the student.
2. In addition to the content knowledge needed to succeed in a specific game, breakouts require critical thinking, collaboration, creativity and communication.
3. A breakout provides learners with many opportunities to fail and try again. Every unsuccessful attempt to open a lock forces students to reexamine their information and their thinking.

Why Use Digital Breakouts? 
A digital breakout requires no preparation of materials, no time spent setting up, and no purchase of a Breakout EDU kit.

Included in this Breakout Download: 
*Breakout website with links to all necessary text and media
*Breakout codes and explanations 
*Student Sheet to Show Work
