# Pi Day Digital Math Escape Room Activity

## Pi Day Digital Math Escape Room Activity

An engaging math escape room for celebrating Pi Day in your middle or high school math classroom! In this escape room, students work with the circle formulas and the formulas for volume of spheres and cylinders to unlock 5 locks. Questions are grouped 4 per puzzle, resulting in five 4-letter codes that will unlock all 5 locks. Each puzzle also includes a fun fact about pi.

**Example questions:**

- Find the diameter, given circumference of a sphere,
- Find radius, given area of a circle,
- Find diameter, given circumference of a cylinder.

Students are asked to find area and circumference of circles, volume of spheres, volume of cylinders, and values of variables within the formulas. Some questions ask students to recall their understanding of literal equations by solving for specific variables in the formulas.

The entire digital activity is housed in one GOOGLE Form with no links to outside websites. The 4-letter codes are set with answer validation so that students cannot move to the next puzzle until they enter the correct code. Includes answer key.

To add the **digital** escape room to your Google Drive: please open the PDF and click the button on page 3.

A **printable PDF** version has also been added to the file. Students can work in groups, each group starting at a different puzzle. Once done, students check the NEXT STEP box for which puzzle to visit next.

This escape room is also on TPT, if you prefer shopping there.
