In this article, the authors explore how to engage students in critical thinking through a virtual field trip. From the mathematics classroom, students problem solve using surface area of three-dimensional shapes, non-Euclidean geometry, probability, and Euclidean constructions. By the end of these activities, students have applied their mathematics understanding to mummies, travel, code breaking, and treasure hunting.
