This escape room activity is an exciting and engaging way to review polynomials, solving equations and graphing linear relations with students!

As a team of astronaut explorers you have landed on a foreign planet to search for signs of life. After exploring, you return to your spaceship to find that a hostile alien life form has sabotaged your ship, preventing access to your control room and damaging key components needed to launch your spaceship and return home! Can you and your friends use your algebra skills to decode the puzzles to regain access to your control room and repair the spaceship for a safe return home?

This bundle contains five work stations with various puzzles students must decode and work through to escape the planet. Students should have a good understanding of all topics listed below in order to complete all these activities. This escape room is designed to last one full class period.

Topics covered in this lesson include:

β€’ Applying properties of operations as strategies to add, subtract, factor, and expand linear expressions with negative and rational coefficients

β€’ Solving linear problems involving equations in the form y = mx+b where y, m, and b are specific rational numbers

β€’ Interpreting linear expressions by solving word problems

β€’ Solving and graphing basic inequalities

There is some teacher prep work that involves printing and assembling student workbook material; however all materials needed to complete this activity are provided in this bundle. Students need only a pencil for calculations - everything else is provided for them!

Solve word problems leading to inequalities of the form 𝘱𝘹 + 𝘲 > 𝘳 or 𝘱𝘹 + 𝘲 < 𝘳, where 𝘱, 𝘲, and 𝘳 are specific rational numbers. Graph the solution set of the inequality and interpret it in the context of the problem. For example: As a salesperson, you are paid $50 per week plus $3 per sale. This week you want your pay to be at least $100. Write an inequality for the number of sales you need to make, and describe the solutions.
Solve word problems leading to equations of the form 𝘱𝘹 + 𝘲 = 𝘳 and 𝘱(𝘹 + 𝘲) = 𝘳, where 𝘱, 𝘲, and 𝘳 are specific rational numbers. Solve equations of these forms fluently. Compare an algebraic solution to an arithmetic solution, identifying the sequence of the operations used in each approach. For example, the perimeter of a rectangle is 54 cm. Its length is 6 cm. What is its width?
Use variables to represent quantities in a real-world or mathematical problem, and construct simple equations and inequalities to solve problems by reasoning about the quantities.
Solve multi-step real-life and mathematical problems posed with positive and negative rational numbers in any form (whole numbers, fractions, and decimals), using tools strategically. Apply properties of operations to calculate with numbers in any form; convert between forms as appropriate; and assess the reasonableness of answers using mental computation and estimation strategies. For example: If a woman making $25 an hour gets a 10% raise, she will make an additional 1/10 of her salary an hour, or $2.50, for a new salary of $27.50. If you want to place a towel bar 9 3/4 inches long in the center of a door that is 27 1/2 inches wide, you will need to place the bar about 9 inches from each edge; this estimate can be used as a check on the exact computation.
Understand that rewriting an expression in different forms in a problem context can shed light on the problem and how the quantities in it are related. For example, 𝘒 + 0.05𝘒 = 1.05𝘒 means that β€œincrease by 5%” is the same as β€œmultiply by 1.05.”
