PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Nothing like a good criminal investigation to liven up number sense! In this project, students will work in teams to investigate the culprit of six fictional thefts. The criminal has left six messages, layered with algebra. Teams will work to build a case and present their findings to the court. Hopefully they are convincing enough to win the verdict.

This is more of an Algebra 1 unit, but I have used this with much success with students still working to pass their state graduation exam. The puzzle solving hook causes many different students to engage in solving traditionally mundane problems. Be the cool teacher :-)

In this 12 page document you will be given a mapping to the Content Standards, an outline for how to implement the project, and six number theory criminal scene puzzles.

This puzzle is mapped to Chapter 1 of Glencoe: Algebra and includes problems featuring the following skills: Order of Operations, Translating Verbal and Algebraic Expressions, Open Sentences, Distributing, Combining Like Terms

An answer key has been added to the end of the file for your convenience.

EVERYTHING IS NOW ALIGNED TO THE COMMON CORE! YAY!
