If you are looking for a fun and engaging way to review middle-level math concepts and you think you have what it takes to problem solve your way out of a virtual escape room - this is the class for you! This 'level 1' class will be most comfortable for students in grades 4/5 or for students who have covered grade 4th/5th material. If you are looking for a similar class that is a bit more challenging, (5th/6th grade level) please look for KEEP CALM & MATH: Escape the Rainforest Level 2 Upper...
TLW: (The learner will...) - practice mathematical operations with whole numbers - review whole number place value - review factors & multiples - review basic fraction skills - review decimal place value through the hundredths place - practice communication & teamwork in small groups - attend to reading & following directions - Utilize mathematical vocabulary in a real-world context - Employ and communicate problem-solving strategies in a small group - Engage positively with their peers in a fun, engaging competition - Work & communicate cooperatively toward a common academic goal
I have been teaching late elementary/middle school math for 20 years. I have a passion for helping kids retain or regain their mathematical confidence. A strong number sense is best built in a safe environment that is fun and engaging. The foundational skills taught in 4th - 8th grades ARE the math skills people need to use in their everyday life and I am committed to helping kids recognize their capability and build on their curiosity to become STRONG MATH LEADERS :)
Learners should bring paper & a pencil to the class. They will need a place to do calculations and keep track of codes. Please, also, it is best if students have a headset or headphones with microphone (many phone earbuds have this!). This cuts down on background noise and makes it A LOT easier to hear each other speaking :) Calculators will not be used for this particular escape room, because we will be focusing on mathematical operations. As I always explain to my students, calculators are absolutely appropriate for performing mathematical operations when to do so is not the focus of the learning objective. For example, if we are learning how to calculate the area of a parallelogram, we use a calculator because our focus is on calculating perimeter, not multiplication :)
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Whether or not they escape! (No worries if they don't - they'll still have fun!)
1 hour 5 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
