PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This is a set of 3 stories that I have used in my math class when discussing logic and reasoning. The students are presented with 3 cases that they must solve and must list possible solutions to the mysteries based on clues they find. There is no "correct answer" and my students enjoy having a class discussion on what they think happened and being able to prove it just by what they are given, they learn not to "assume" anything. This activity could also be used in a language arts class.

The description says 9th grade but it was too low level for 8th/9th grade Geometry as an inductive reasoning activity or conversation starter. It would be better targeted towards 6th/7th.

Very nice activity - it will be a good time filler the first week of school. My 8th graders love mysteries!
