Math Keypad for Escape Rooms


Escape rooms are really popular especially as we are teaching virtually, however, I haven't been able to find a math keypad to use in mine, so I made one. 

Creating the keypad for your escape room is simple to do in google draw.  By creating your own you can make it exactly how you want it from size, color, all the way to choices.  Start by opening a new google draw.  Once you open the google draw decide which shape you want the keys to be, I typically select a rectangle or a circle.  From there you can start inserting your numbers by clicking into the shape or symbols.  For inserting symbols, I like to use Equatio.  Equatio is a google extension which is free.  Once you finish making your keypad select it all and copy and paste it into your escape room.  By making it in google draw your background is transparent and will take on the background from the slide behind like the picture above has a blue background.  I've pre-made one for you here, once you make your copy, you can change the color or size to fit your needs.

Pixel Art with Math Problems

    A pixel art activity provides instant feedback and some excitement.  My students enjoy doing these because they can see right away if they are doing the work correct and they also like to race to figure out the picture first.    Integer Operations Add/Subtract Pixel Art This is an online activity where students complete addition and subtraction of integers. The students will input their answer in the table and a color will appear if they are correct. When the students are finished they will have a picture.   Distribute Equations Pixel Art This in an online activity that has students solve equations with the distributive property. Several of the equations also require knowledge of combining like terms after distributing. Students solve the problem and type the answer in the table, if they are correct a color will appear. When the table is filled they will have a picture. One Step Equations Pixel Art This activity is done online in Google Sheets. The students solve each equatio

Pixel Art Activities

    If you are looking for students to practice multiple concepts at once with instant feedback these 2 activities would be great. The first activity hast students write the equation of a line given 2 points.  They start by finding the slope, then the y-intercept, and finally writing the equation.  Each piece along the way will color the picture if they are correct.  I like this instant feedback because my student tend to get frustrated if they do all the work and then when I check it we realize their slope was wrong so they have to start at the beginning again. The second activity is on percent, decimals, and fractions.  This activity requires students to convert between the 3 along with making the fractions mixed numbers.  This is great for middle school classes to practice.  My students tend to struggle with which way to move the decimal so this instant feedback helps them check their answers as they go.   Writing Equations of a Line - Baby Yoda Pixel Art Percent, Decimal, Fraction
