Have your students practice solving One Variable Inequalities the fun way: with an escape room. Don't worry, I know that creating escape rooms can be expensive, but not this one. The only additional items you will need are letter size envelopes and maybe 3 8x10 acrylic frames.
This activity may take anywhere from 45-90 minutes, it will depend on the abilities of your students. For Algebra II students, I give them 1 traditional class period to unlock the doors. For Algebra I students, I give them 1 block class period, or 2 traditional class periods to complete the escape room. For lower lever students, I eliminated one of the doors.
Your students are vampire who have been locked out of their crypt overnight. They must find a way to unlock the three doors of the crypt and get back in before the sun rises or they will turn to dust.
For this escape room you will want to break your students into teams of 3-4 vampires each.
To successfully unlock the doors the students will need to solve:
* Two-Step Inequalities
* Inequalities with Combining Like Terms
* Inequalities with Distributive Property
Materials in Packet:
Three hint cards for each group.
Direction cards for each envelope.
Equation cards for each envelope.
Optional extra problem to earn extra time.
