This escape room activity is an exciting and engaging way to review integers and rational numbers with students.
As part of the Cambridge Archeology Team, you have been tasked with excavating and exploring a recently discovered tomb. While exploring, you accidentally cross a trip line, setting in motion the release mechanism to a heavy stone door which crashes down from the ceiling behind you, barring exit from the room! Further exploring the tomb you discover a series of mathematical puzzles as well as a dial next to the heavy door. Perhaps solving these puzzles will provide you with clues to somehow use this dial to escape the tomb!
This bundle contains five work centers with various puzzles students must decode and work through to escape the tomb. 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:
• Adding and Subtracting Rational Numbers (Including Negatives)
• Multiplying and Dividing Rational Numbers (Including Negatives)
• Converting Fractions To Decimals
There is some teacher prep work that involves printing and cutting materials; however the only additional materials needed to complete this activity is student access to a computer (only one computer needed for the entire class). The computer component is not vital to the activity; however it does add an extra bit of excitement for students when completing the escape room activities.
Note: computer must be able to access Microsoft excel.
