### Get Lost in Learning with Qwizy's Math Mazes!

• March 31, 2020

Introducing a new product to the Qwizy blog - Math Mazes! These activities have been around for a while and the reason is simple: they work. A math maze provides each student with a fun and engaging activity to practice their math skills, and Qwizy's Math Mazes guarantee each student will be working on a different maze, ensuring individual work. But why are Math Mazes so effective in the classroom?

First, most students love doing mazes! This activity has a low barrier to entry, making it an easy way to engage students who may not be eager to start their math assignments. Even struggling students can reason their way through the first few problems, allowing for easy transition between the problems and a lot of practice on one concept.

The challenge of finishing the maze and seeing if they can get to the end motivates students to work through all 15 problems without even realizing it. With 160 different maze paths available, each student can potentially be working on different problems at different times, allowing for independent work. And as a bonus, maze paths are easy for teachers to check - a quick visual glance is all that's needed to identify any struggling students and target specific misconceptions.

Each Maze Set, sold on TPT, contains 160 unique Maze Activity Pages with 5 Sets of 15 Questions that are randomly shuffled up with 32 different paths for you and your students. The Maze sets can be used either as hard copies or digitally through Google Classroom and/or Google Drive, and come with step-by-step instructions for easy implementation.

If you're looking for a new way to engage your students in math class, try out Qwizy's Math Mazes - they're sure to be a hit! Don't forget to check out our other products, such as our Cut and Paste Activities and our Super Hero themed Pixel Art sets, for even more engaging math activities.
