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.

The puzzle solving hook causes many different students to engage in solving traditionally mundane problems. Be the cool teacher :-)

In this 12 page document you will be given a mapping to the Content Standards, an outline for how to implement the project, and six number theory criminal scene puzzles.

This puzzle is mapped to Common Core Standards and includes problems featuring the following skills: Exponents and Roots, Converting Scientific to Standard Notation, Evaluating Expressions, Compound Interest, Square Root Approximation

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