I am excited to share this test prep MYSTERY CHALLENGE activity with you and your students! You will begin this activity by reading a short story that will challenge your students to solve the case of the missing scratch paper. They will have to find out who took the paper, when they took it, and where they put it. To solve the case, students will work to complete 9 different task cards. The task cards are based on sixth grade math standards. The students are allow use a calculator to complete these tasks. Once they complete a task card, they will receive a clue. After they have all 9 clues, they will be able to solve the mystery. As a fun culmination, there are awards. You could also present a candy treat too! This is similar to the who dunnit activities.

CCSS6.RP.A.3c

Find a percent of a quantity as a rate per 100 (e.g., 30% of a quantity means 30/100 times the quantity); solve problems involving finding the whole, given a part and the percent.

CCSS6.RP.A.1

Understand the concept of a ratio and use ratio language to describe a ratio relationship between two quantities. For example, βThe ratio of wings to beaks in the bird house at the zoo was 2:1, because for every 2 wings there was 1 beak.β βFor every vote candidate A received, candidate C received nearly three votes.β

CCSS6.EE.A.4

Identify when two expressions are equivalent (i.e., when the two expressions name the same number regardless of which value is substituted into them). For example, the expressions πΊ + πΊ + πΊ and 3πΊ are equivalent because they name the same number regardless of which number πΊ stands for.

CCSS6.EE.A.3

Apply the properties of operations to generate equivalent expressions. For example, apply the distributive property to the expression 3 (2 + πΉ) to produce the equivalent expression 6 + 3πΉ; apply the distributive property to the expression 24πΉ + 18πΊ to produce the equivalent expression 6 (4πΉ + 3πΊ); apply properties of operations to πΊ + πΊ + πΊ to produce the equivalent expression 3πΊ.

CCSS6.EE.A.2

Write, read, and evaluate expressions in which letters stand for numbers.
