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 pencils. They will have to find out who took the pencils, 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. 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.

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

Understand the concept of a unit rate 𝘒/𝘣 associated with a ratio 𝘒:𝘣 with 𝘣 β‰  0, and use rate language in the context of a ratio relationship. For example, β€œThis 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€œWe paid $75 for 15 hamburgers, which is a rate of $5 per hamburger.”
Understand the concept of a ratio and use ratio language to describe a ratio relationship between two quantities. For example, β€œThe 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€œFor every vote candidate A received, candidate C received nearly three votes.”
Write an inequality of the form 𝘹 > 𝘀 or 𝘹 < 𝘀 to represent a constraint or condition in a real-world or mathematical problem. Recognize that inequalities of the form 𝘹 > 𝘀 or 𝘹 < 𝘀 have infinitely many solutions; represent solutions of such inequalities on number line diagrams.
Solve real-world and mathematical problems by writing and solving equations of the form 𝘹 + 𝘱 = 𝘲 and 𝘱𝘹 = 𝘲 for cases in which 𝘱, 𝘲 and 𝘹 are all nonnegative rational numbers.
Use variables to represent numbers and write expressions when solving a real-world or mathematical problem; understand that a variable can represent an unknown number, or, depending on the purpose at hand, any number in a specified set.
