When high school math teacher Jennifer Feehan got home one day, she turned to her husband proudly and said, “I had kids running to do math problems today. Like, running.”

Her secret? A game called 100 Squares Challenge, which she uses as a tool for review in her AP precalculus class at Fauquier High School, in Warrenton, VA. To prepare, she sources dozens of math problems from worksheets and AP classroom questions. She cuts up the worksheets so each piece of paper includes just one problem, and makes an answer key for herself.
