Identifying Functions Maze Activity - Self Checking and No Prep


Looking for a highly engaging Identifying Functions activity for your 8th Grade Math & Algebra 1 students? This self-checking function vs. non-function maze game is unlike anything your students have seen before and includes an animated story with alternate endings!

In this Adventurous Joe activity, Joe is throwing a BBQ for friends and family, when his cooler full of food falls into a snake-infested lake! Students must correctly solve surface area problems to help Joe safely get his cooler back!

Problem types include: Identifying functions from graphs, tables, maps, and ordered pairs.

❤️Why Students & Teachers LOVE this Resource❤️

  • Self-Checking. If students answer the questions correctly, Joe makes it out of his sticky situation. If they make a wrong turn, his adventure turns sour!
  • Engaging. The ONLY math product on TpT (that I can find) with an animated video story to accompany the activity.
  • No Prep. Just print & go!
