Students reviewed for a test on rational functions by solving problems and puzzles to “escape” a digital escape room created by their teacher Mrs. Merida. Brain breaks were built in – desk yoga, a doodle game, and showtunes – to help relax the students as they prepared for their exam. As a bonus, students received a special sticker after successfully "escaping."
Mrs. Merida regularly incorporates creative activities to keep her students engaged. "When a student tells me that she enjoyed doing her math classwork I know it's a win," she said.
