# Pi Day Digital Math Escape Room Activity for Middle School

## Pi Day Digital Math Escape Room Activity for Middle School

An engaging math escape room for celebrating Pi Day in your middle school math classroom! In this activity, students work with the circle formulas 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.

Students are asked to find either the area or the circumference of a circle, given diameter or radius in a word problem. Some of the problems use spheres or cylinders as context, but all questions ask for either area or circumference only.

The entire activity is housed in one GOOGLE Form. There are 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 activity is also on TPT, if you prefer shopping there.
