What educators are saying

We used this as a fun break from our regular math. My son loves math and puzzles so it was a huge hit was hard to pull him away to finish anything else.
This was a great review for my class to do an escape room on division. Some of this was a little challenging for 4th grade, but they powered through it!

Division Content

  • Clue 1-Students solve each of the division problems. After students divide, they find the quotient on the bottom of the recording sheet. Students will place the letter on the problem on top of the corresponding quotient.
  • Clue 2-The numbers on the table are being used as dividends in division problems. Students should color in all numbers that will be certain to have a remainder-no matter what the divisor for the problem is. Students should not try to solve every possible division problem. Instead, have students think about divisibility rules and use the process of elimination.
  • Clue 3-Students should solve each of the division problems where the student must interpret what to do with the remainder of the word problem. There are three answer choices at the bottom of each card. Students will select the best choice and write down the corresponding letter. Students then unscramble the letters to find your next clue.
  • Clue 4-Students should solve each of the problems on the Clue 4 cards. These problems all consistent of area models or box models of division problems with missing numbers. After students determine the five answers, they place the cards in order from the smallest answer to the greatest answer. This is the order of the letters for the 5-letter lock.

This can be used with Breakout Edu boxes or with your own boxes and locks. If you do not have boxes and locks, you may use the digital version, where students submit their answers on Google Forms.
