About this resource :

This escape room style activity provides students with a collaborative way to review solving basic one and two-step equations. Included are eight challenges that require students to solve basic equations to find codes that will unlock each puzzle. Operations with integers and fractions are NOT included.

NOTE: The challenges in this escape are IDENTICAL to those in the Solving Higher Level Equations Escape. The codes are also the same. This was done so teachers can use the challenges to differentiate without students finding different codes or doing different challenges. It will look like they're all working on the same puzzles, but the content will be easier with this version.

This escape room is NOT…

This resource is not a comprehensive, complete review of solving basic equations. Math escapes do focus on content but the primary focus is on the collaboration and the problem solving.

What makes this escape activity different?

This activity does not require the challenges to be completed in any particular order. In order for students to “escape” they simply have to find all 8 codes. This allows for (a) differentiation, (b) removal of challenges for time and (c) the ability for you to only make one copy of each challenge because as groups finish one challenge their next one can be whatever is available.

What is included?

⇢ CCSS and TEKS standard alignment

⇢ Four pages of escape directions

⇢ A digital lock option

⇢ Links to locks/boxes to purchase

⇢ Detailed puzzle teacher information

⇢ 8 challenges with prep instructions and materials

⇢ Hint cards for each challenge (PDF format and EDITABLE PPT format)

Solve word problems leading to equations of the form 𝘱𝘹 + 𝘲 = 𝘳 and 𝘱(𝘹 + 𝘲) = 𝘳, where 𝘱, 𝘲, and 𝘳 are specific rational numbers. Solve equations of these forms fluently. Compare an algebraic solution to an arithmetic solution, identifying the sequence of the operations used in each approach. For example, the perimeter of a rectangle is 54 cm. Its length is 6 cm. What is its width?
Solve real-world and mathematical problems by writing and solving equations of the form 𝘹 + 𝘱 = 𝘲 and 𝘱𝘹 = 𝘲 for cases in which 𝘱, 𝘲 and 𝘹 are all nonnegative rational numbers.
