Description

***THIS PRODUCT HAS BEEN UPDATED WITH A GOOGLE SLIDES INTERACTIVE VERSION INCLUDED. REDOWNLOAD IF YOU HAVE IT ALREADY***

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.

I like to use these puzzles as review before the unit test. The puzzle solving hook causes many different students to engage in solving traditionally mundane problems. Be the cool teacher :-)

In this 20 page document you will be given a mapping to the Content Standards, an outline for how to implement the project, and six crime scene puzzles.

This puzzle includes problems featuring the following skills: The Real Number System, Properties of Real Numbers, Irrational Numbers, Square Root Approximations and Perfect Squares and Cubes.

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

Standards

to see state-specific standards (only available in the US).
Use rational approximations of irrational numbers to compare the size of irrational numbers, locate them approximately on a number line diagram, and estimate the value of expressions (e.g., π²). For example, by truncating the decimal expansion of √2, show that √2 is between 1 and 2, then between 1.4 and 1.5, and explain how to continue on to get better approximations.
Know that numbers that are not rational are called irrational. Understand informally that every number has a decimal expansion; for rational numbers show that the decimal expansion repeats eventually, and convert a decimal expansion which repeats eventually into a rational number.
Solve real-world and mathematical problems involving the four operations with rational numbers.
Apply and extend previous understandings of multiplication and division and of fractions to multiply and divide rational numbers.
