Product Description
Here's a real life crime scene application of algebra and statistics for your students....

Human skeletal remains have been found on a construction site. Most of the bones have been crushed leaving only a pelvis, femur and tooth for students to examine. Students must identify who the remains belong to using their knowledge of formulae and linear regression. A task involving the normal distribution is optional (see further details below).

What comes with this resource:
- Teacher Guide
- Workstation task sheets (data & photo provided for the femur task)
- Workstation signs
- Answer sheet
- Missing person database

The activity involves 3 tasks:

★ The Tooth - Students will use a formula and measurements from the tooth to determine the age of the individual.

★ The Femur - Students will be given a sample dataset of human heights and femur lengths. They must produce a linear regression model relating femur length to height. Students will then have to measure the femur found at the site (photo provided) and use their regression model to predict height.

★ The Pelvis - Students will use a formula and measurements of the pelvis to determine sex. There is the option to replace this task with one that uses z-scores and the normal distribution. Two worksheets for the pelvis are therefore provided but only one worksheet is needed for the activity.
