Students love the intrigue of a good mystery. In this lighthearted digital activity made to work with Google Drive and/or Google Classroom, students will help Inspector Tooslow figure out which suspects committed the crimes by using/practicing their skills with relationships for angles when parallel lines are intersected by a transversal.
Each set of 3 problems requires your junior detectives to solve problems like:
1) finding an angle measure from given parallel lines.
2) finding the value of x from given parallel lines.
3) finding angle measures with more than 3 lines.
4) determining which lines must be parallel.
The correct answers lead them to clues that help them to solve a 3x4 logic puzzle. Then, the results are recorded in a "case solved" page at the end.
There is a version (with key) made available for easy copying to your own Google Drive. The instructions are provided in the download.
I am and have been a high school Geometry teacher for 20+ years, and this activity has been used in my classroom with much enjoyment by my students and myself.
