Product Description
Nothing like a good mystery to engage your math students! The Math Detective has gone to Washington DC! This time someone has "robbed" the Smithsonian. Your job is to find out who the thief is, what they stole, and where they were caught hiding.
This Math Detective focuses on practicing the skill of adding and subtracting fractions.

The teacher will place the 10 clues (problems) around the room. Students (or groups of students) will solve the 10 adding and subtracting fractions problems. Each answer will result in a clue. (It may be a wrong clue if they solve the problem incorrectly.) Students will check off the Players, Where Thief Was Found Hiding location, and Item Stolen that are accounted for from each clue. Each clue will give at least one piece of information; some give two pieces. When all problems are solved correctly, the one (person/location/item) left in each column is the correct solution.

Watch the students work to solve the crime!

In this 17 page file, you are given detailed directions for implementation, 10 clues to print and tape to your wall/place around your room, a student worksheet with room to work the problems, and the answer key.
