Intense focus guided students at Sachem High School East as they worked through math equations during a Breakout EDU activity to find the lost treasure of Newton.  

Calculus students in Scott Kennedy’s math class were separated into two teams and challenged to solve a series of calculus equations to get clues, tools, keys and combinations to unlock five different locks. Within the collection of locked boxes held the clue to the location of Newton’s lost treasure. 

With both teams successfully completing the task and finding the final clue, the students claimed their treasure, which was a tasty snack securely locked away in Dr. Kennedy’s file cabinet.
