This escape room style activity asks students to save the human race from Ebola! The escape room has three phases, each with different ways to decode the puzzle. The first phase focuses on characteristics of exponential functions, such as domain and range, through multiple choice questions. The next two phases focus on exponential growth and decay using word problems about different diseases (numerical answers). The activity can be used with or without lock boxes. If lock boxes are not used, there are Google Forms that the students "unlock" for the next phase. The links have been tested and should work, but you may have to copy and paste them into Google Classroom or another form to give them to your students.

Topics covered in this activity:

  • Identifying Exponential Functions
  • Domain and range of exponential functions
  • X and y-intercepts
  • Writing Exponential Functions from a set of points
  • Writing and Interpreting Exponential Functions (from word problems)
  • Evaluating Exponential Functions
  • Average Rate of Change (exponential functions)
  • Compounding Interest

How to use this activity:

  • Split students into groups of 3-4
  • Start class with the theme and minimal instructions
  • Give students phase 1 and post phase 1 clues around the room.
  • Phase 2 and 3 clues should be placed in boxes with locks OR should be ready to hand out once students crack code on Google Forms.
