Nothing like a good criminal investigation to liven up geometry! In this project, students will work in teams to investigate the culprit of six fictional thefts. The criminal has left six messages, layered with geometry practice. 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 an outline for how to implement the project, an answer key and six challenging crime scene puzzles.
This puzzle is mapped to Chapters 1 and 3 of Glencoe: Geometry and includes problems featuring the following skills: Distance and Midpoints, Perimeter, Polygons, Writing Equations of Lines and Parallel Lines
An answer key has been added to the end of the file for your convenience.
