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 calculators. They will have to find out who took the calculators, when they took them, and where they put them. To solve the case, students will work to complete 9 different task cards. The task cards are based on sixth grade math standards. They should NOT 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.

**Here is what you will receive in this exciting adventure pack!**

Some fun ways to connect....

Log in to see state-specific standards (only available in the US).

CCSS6.RP.A.3b

Solve unit rate problems including those involving unit pricing and constant speed. For example, if it took 7 hours to mow 4 lawns, then at that rate, how many lawns could be mowed in 35 hours? At what rate were lawns being mowed?

CCSS6.RP.A.3

Use ratio and rate reasoning to solve real-world and mathematical problems, e.g., by reasoning about tables of equivalent ratios, tape diagrams, double number line diagrams, or equations.

CCSS6.RP.A.2

Understand the concept of a unit rate π’/π£ associated with a ratio π’:π£ with π£ β 0, and use rate language in the context of a ratio relationship. For example, βThis recipe has a ratio of 3 cups of flour to 4 cups of sugar, so there is 3/4 cup of flour for each cup of sugar.β βWe paid $75 for 15 hamburgers, which is a rate of $5 per hamburger.β

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.C.9

Use variables to represent two quantities in a real-world problem that change in relationship to one another; write an equation to express one quantity, thought of as the dependent variable, in terms of the other quantity, thought of as the independent variable. Analyze the relationship between the dependent and independent variables using graphs and tables, and relate these to the equation. For example, in a problem involving motion at constant speed, list and graph ordered pairs of distances and times, and write the equation π₯ = 65π΅ to represent the relationship between distance and time.
