The Math Mysteries are a collection of classroom games that blend mathematical practice with escape room-style puzzle elements.
To unravel the mystery, players gather and interpret clues. One step of this process requires completing a mathematical practice puzzle to construct an important piece of evidence.
These games are built for modularity. Several mathematics topics are available for each Math Mystery, so teachers can choose something that aligns with their curriculum. The escape room elements work the same regardless of the topic chosen!
