Digital Math Escape Rooms

Digital Math Escape Rooms

Wowza, what a school year. Whether your students are working independently in your classroom or distance learning from home, I wanted to make some super-engaging digital math activities to get students excited about practicing their math. These new digital math escape rooms have been built in Google Forms with no outside links. The directions are simple -- enter a 4-letter code to advance to the next puzzle -- so students can focus all of their energy on their math.

Because of the sudden, widespread need for digital math activities, I updated many of my printable math materials to also include digital versions. You can see those here. I have also recently been creating some digital-only math activities to work in Google Slides and Google Forms. One of the newest activity types I've been making in Google Forms are these digital math escape rooms.

I have been getting some great feedback on these new digital math escape rooms: 


"I've been using escape rooms from other authors. I love them but there has been some problems with the digital ones. My students were unable to access the website to see if they had the correct code. They don't have to do that with this one. It's all right there in google forms. This has been a lifesaver. I am looking forward in purchasing more of these escape rooms." -Kathleen S


This feedback made me happy to read because it was exactly what I had hoped these digital math escape rooms would be-- engaging, easy to access for all and timesavers for teachers.


How do these digital math escape rooms work?

Each digital math escape room has been built in Google Forms with no outside links. Everything is housed within the Google Form. This way you can collect student data and never worry that a link will be blocked or broken.

Each escape room consists of 5 puzzles. In each puzzle there are 4 questions to answer. Once students answer the 4 questions, they find their answers in the answer choices grid. This will generate a 4-letter code. Entering that code into the answer box on the Form will unlock the lock. There are 5 locks to unlock in each escape room activity.

I am making more each week. If there is a topic you need, I am happy to make it for you (and send it to you for free as a thank you for your suggestion). My email is shana@scaffoldedmath.com or you can leave a comment here. 


Important note: If your students do not have Google logins, but you do have access to your own Google Drive at school, you can still use these digital math escape rooms (or any Google Form). Students do not need to log into Google to complete a Google Form. As long as you can house it on your own Google Drive, you can send it as an assignment for students to complete without the need for student Google accounts.

  1. I would love to have an escape room for all the factoring methods: GCF, grouping, a=1, a>1, special cases (perfect square trinomials, difference of two squares).

  3. Is it possible you have one with 2nd grade addition and subtraction with regrouping. The students can master it without regrouping but get confused when they need to regroup.

  4. I'd love to see a digital breakout room that uses the properties of quadrilaterals-parallelograms, square, rectangle, rhombus, kite, trapezoid

    1. Hi DeeCee, thank you for your comment. My email address is shana@scaffoldedmath.com if you'd like to send me an email about this. I will think about how to frame the questions to ask students about quadrilaterals.

  5. I'm thinking about making a digital escape room involving the main algebraic skills my geometry students will need second semester: Solving linear equations, solving systems of linear equations, solving proportions, and solving quadratic equations using square roots. If YOU made one instead, I'm sure I'd purchase it!
