## Description

- Overview:
- In this math escape room lesson, students work in teams to solve a series of math puzzles and riddles to "escape" a themed room. Each puzzle is designed to reinforce key math concepts such as fractions, geometry, and basic algebra. As students solve each problem, they receive clues that lead them to the next challenge, promoting critical thinking and collaboration. The activity concludes with a debrief where students discuss the strategies they used and the math skills they applied.

## Standards

Learning Domain: Operations and Algebraic Thinking

Standard: Multiply or divide to solve word problems involving multiplicative comparison, by using strategies including, but not limited to, drawings and equations with a symbol for the unknown number to represent the problem, distinguishing multiplicative comparison from additive comparison.

Degree of Alignment: Not Rated (0 users)

Learning Domain: Operations and Algebraic Thinking

Standard: Solve multiplication and division word problems within 100 using appropriate modeling strategies and equations.

Degree of Alignment: Not Rated (0 users)

Learning Domain: Operations and Algebraic Thinking

Standard: Apply properties of multiplication as strategies to multiply and divide. (Students need not use formal terms for these properties.)

Learning Domain: Operations and Algebraic Thinking

Standard: Represent the concept of multiplication of whole numbers using models including, but not limited to, equal-sized groups ("groups of"), arrays, area models, repeated addition, and equal "jumps" on a number line.

Learning Domain: Operations and Algebraic Thinking

Standard: Multiply or divide to solve word problems involving multiplicative comparison, e.g., by using drawings and equations with a symbol for the unknown number to represent the problem, distinguishing multiplicative comparison from additive comparison.

Learning Domain: Operations and Algebraic Thinking

Standard: Use multiplication and division within 100 to solve word problems in situations involving equal groups, arrays, and measurement quantities, e.g., by using drawings and equations with a symbol for the unknown number to represent the problem.

Learning Domain: Operations and Algebraic Thinking

Standard: Apply properties of operations as strategies to multiply and divide. Examples: If 6 x 4 = 24 is known, then 4 x 6 = 24 is also known. (Commutative property of multiplication.) 3 x 5 x 2 can be found by 3 x 5 = 15 then 15 x 2 = 30, or by 5 x 2 = 10 then 3 x 10 = 30. (Associative property of multiplication.) Knowing that 8 x 5 = 40 and 8 x 2 = 16, one can find 8 x 7 as 8 x (5 + 2) = (8 x 5) + (8 x 2) = 40 + 16 = 56. (Distributive property.) (Students need not use formal terms for these properties.)

Learning Domain: Operations and Algebraic Thinking

Standard: Identify arithmetic patterns (including patterns in the addition table or multiplication table), and explain them using properties of operations. For example, observe that 4 times a number is always even, and explain why 4 times a number can be decomposed into two equal addends.

Learning Domain: Operations and Algebraic Thinking

Standard: Interpret products of whole numbers, e.g., interpret 5 x 7 as the total number of objects in 5 groups of 7 objects each. For example, describe a context in which a total number of objects can be expressed as 5 x 7.

Learning Domain: Operations and Algebraic Thinking

Standard: Fluently multiply and divide within 100, using strategies such as the relationship between multiplication and division (e.g., knowing that 8 x 5 = 40, one knows 40 Ö 5 = 8) or properties of operations. By the end of Grade 3, know from memory all products of one-digit numbers.

Learning Domain: Measurement and Data

Standard: Draw a scaled picture graph and a scaled bar graph to represent a data set with several categories. Solve one- and two-step "how many more"ť and "how many less"ť problems using information presented in scaled bar graphs. For example, draw a bar graph in which each square in the bar graph might represent 5 pets.
