On the afternoon before Winter Break, Kelly Mauger’s AP Calculus class grappled with a series of math puzzles as they tried to solve a holiday themed escape room challenge.
The students began their challenge by listening to a video message from Ernie the Evil Elf (AKA English teacher Darren Lovelock), who has locked up all of Santa’s gifts. The class’s mission was to solve a series of puzzles to arrive at a three-digit code to unlock the box and save the holidays.
After working through the different math-themed challenges, the students were able to get into the box just before the period ended. Inside, they found pencils that said, “You are limitless! #APCalc.”
