Having Some Fun with Our Thinking Skills

JFerguson
During the last week of March, the Grade 7-12 Math classes visited DeCode Adventures to participate in room escapes and team building activities. Students put their critical thinking, logical reasoning and problem-solving skills to the test when collaborating with their team to develop a plan to escape their respective rooms. The team building workshops that followed forced groups to see things from differing perspectives and also gave students the opportunity to use creativity in designing a device to perform a specified task. After the trip, students reflected on the experience and made connections with their math classes by realizing the importance of executing problem-solving steps in the appropriate order to be successful and the need for clear communication when working towards a solution with a group of differing thinkers.
