PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Solving exponential and logarithmic equations are fun and engaging in this mystery project. In this project students will work to test the stories of four suspects, Mrs. White, Colonel Mustard, Miss Scarlet, and Professor Plum. Each suspect has a defense for the crime but only math can prove if they are telling the truth.

Exponential modeling using Newton's Law of Cooling is used to find the time of the murder. Exponential decay models are used to find how much poison was used.

This two-three day project is a great finale for an exponential and logarithmic unit. Students will enjoy the quest to solve the crime and be required to use critical thinking to make their final decision.

An editable file is included so that you can make adjustments to the assignment. An answer key and directions are included.
