FORENSIC DETECTIVE "Who Did It?": Area and Perimeter of Irregular Shapes (PBL)!
This also includes math skills, problem solving, and is aligned with Common Core.
This project is based around the idea of students are forensic detectives using their knowledge of area and perimeter, along with many other math (and academic) skills to create a unique learning opportunity.
Students will be required to use critical thinking skills, estimation, and more with this form of project based learning to solve the cookie case.
Students will still be required to apply their knowledge of area, perimeter, and many other skills to solve the problem:
Each of you are going to be detectives today. Yesterday, there was someone who took a cookie from the jar leaving behind only a footprint. We brought in some suspects for questioning and traced each of their feet to see if we could find a match. It is up to you to determine who committed the crime.
