Want to have a little fun around New Year while still challenging your students academically?

This digital breakout is intended for reviewing scientific notation while having fun around the start of the new year. This team building exercise will provide challenge, conversation, and fun. This breakout will allow students to practice writing numbers in scientific notation, adding, subtracting, multiplying, and dividing using scientific notation, and using real world information to compare numbers in scientific notation. If you are concerned that your students will rush through the breakout without solving the problems thoroughly, print the scratch paper templates for students to show their work as they are solving problems.

Digital breakouts are similar to physical lock box breakouts but without the hassle of all the necessary equipment. A digital breakout uses the same concept but without the physical locks and keys. All you need is the internet and collaborative, logical minds.

If you have used digital breakouts before, all you will have to do is assign the link provided. The link is to a Google Site that holds the Google Form with the “locks” and the narrative for the breakout. Custom links are embedded within the Google Site to the clues.

Clues can be found by solving 5 locks including:
★ Clicking on hyperlinks found within underlined text and pictures
★ Solving a scientific notation addition and subtraction maze
★ Solving a logic puzzle while using real data to solve scientific notation questions
★ Eliminating inaccurate answers to numbers written in scientific notation
★ Solving puzzles by multiplying and dividing numbers written in scientific notation

------The crime being solved is a student-friendly, missing item mystery.-----

Perform operations with numbers expressed in scientific notation, including problems where both decimal and scientific notation are used. Use scientific notation and choose units of appropriate size for measurements of very large or very small quantities (e.g., use millimeters per year for seafloor spreading). Interpret scientific notation that has been generated by technology.
Use numbers expressed in the form of a single digit times an integer power of 10 to estimate very large or very small quantities, and to express how many times as much one is than the other. For example, estimate the population of the United States as 3 × 10⁸ and the population of the world as 7 × 10⁹, and determine that the world population is more than 20 times larger.
