About Math Escapes

Why a Membership? I wanted to bring you more than just a bundle of Math Escapes. I want to create a community where every single teacher can learn, share and grow - together. Not just in their use of Math Escapes but in their classroom as a whole.

◆ Unlimited access to all Math Escape Activities {All escapes listed below - both completed and planned} 

An invitation to join a private Facebook Group that joins you together with other teachers who are using Math Escapes in their classrooms so you can learn, share ideas and grow together

Challenge templates that allow you to create your own challenges to enhance or supplement current escapes or create your own from scratch (templates are for personal use only).

These escape room style activities provides students with a collaborative way to review important math skills. Each individual Math Escape Activity includes eight challenges that require students to use skills from each group of standards to find codes that will unlock each puzzle.


Math Escapes are typically not comprehensive, complete reviews of all standards. Math Escapes do focus on content but the primary focus is on the collaboration and the problem solving. The escapes should not be used for complete test review but should be used as a fun way to wrap up a skill (or the year!). They also provide a great way to start off a new school year - but using an escape that covers a skill or skills from the year before.


Math Escapes do not require the challenges to be completed in any particular order. In order for students to “escape” they simply have to find all 8 codes. This allows for (a) differentiation, (b) removal of challenges for time and (c) the ability for you to only make one copy of each challenge because as groups finish one challenge their next one can be whatever is available.

All you will need is a ruler, a mirror (a link to cheap, nonbreakable mirrors is included), glue stick, fastening clips/brads, scissors.
