Product Description

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 is mapped to Chapter 2 of Glencoe: Algebra and includes problems featuring the following skills: The Real Number System, Properties of Real Numbers, Irrational Numbers, Square Root Approximations and Perfect Squares and Cubes.
