Agent Order of Operations Seven, 0007 for short, has fallen into a trap. Your students are being recruited by the Mathematical Security Agency to help Agent 0007 and his team escape!

This product includes:

• A letter to your students explaining their mission
• A dossier of the mathematical villain Kay Oss, AKA Chaos
• Instructions for how to complete a cipher used in the escape room
• Exit tickets
• Optional decorations for "Top Secret" folders or envelopes

This order of operations lesson was specifically written for 5th grade standards, but can be great enrichment for earlier grades or review for older grades. In order to complete the escape room, students will need these skills:

• Able to solve problems using the four operations (addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division) following the order of operations.
• Solve multi-step word problems involving the four operations.
• Evaluate expressions using brackets and parentheses
• Place parentheses in the correct place in a problem to make an expression true. Example: To make the expression 16 ÷ 4 × 2 + 2 = 4 true, students would add in parentheses: 16 ÷ (4 × 2) + 2 = 4
• Complete a substitution cipher (substituting letters for numbers, or a Caesar Shift cipher with directions provided).

Escape rooms are great for encouraging positive group dynamics. You can also use this lesson for individual students for enrichment or review.

This lesson will take just over an hour to complete.
