This activity combines the skill of solving conic sections with the classic board game CLUE. Students will use the clues they gather from correctly solving equations to solve the mystery of Who Killed Mr. Conic.
To use this Scavenger Hunt Activity, before class print the activity cards included in your file and hang them around your room. As students solve the equations, they look around the room for their answer to see what clue they should eliminate.
Each answer is associated with either a suspect, a weapon or a location. When a student gets the answer, that option is eliminated from the mystery. When they are finished, students will only have one suspect, one weapon and location left, and they will have solved the mystery!
