Friday in class the students practiced working on their adding/subtracting decimals skills while working with word problems. Students were put into groups, handed a clue, and could not open their first lock until all group member had agreed upon the answer. 

I got some interesting looks as I purchased 9 tool boxes and 8 4-digit combination locks. I also got a 4-digit bike lock for the final box. 

This my first time to try the escape game and I have already learned a lot for the next time. I love making math fun.

Yesterday in class we created a foldable with 3 examples of the box method. For the remainder of class we discussed the examples and completed the following practice problems.

This year I decided to experiment with a flexible classroom. Math can be very uncomfortable for some students. That added to all the middle school hormones and drama it can get even worse. So I decided to try to make my middle school math classroom as comfortable as possible.

I am curious, are you fan? Let me know.
