Product Description

Engage your students with a Math Mystery, the 'Case of who broke the printer. This activity will add an exciting twist to your math sessions. EASY PREP - Print & Solve!

It will feel like a game, but with the convenience of easy to prep worksheets.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Students must use their math skills to eliminate suspects so they can find out who broke the printer.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Preparation

- No Prep required! Print the student pages, staple or place

in a folder, and your students are set to go.

Math Skills Required to Unlock Clues

There are ten clues to crack to solve the mystery:

Adding and subtracting whole numbers with regrouping up to 100,000.

Multi step word problems with addition and subtraction.

Place Value- Know the value of numbers, place, and how many times greater is each place.

Students must use critical thinking skills to figure out what the clue is telling them to eliminate from the list of suspects.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Multiple Uses

- Suitable for independent, pairs, or group work.

I recommend pacing this activity by giving students one clue at a time. Once the whole class has completed a clue, then move on to the next clue either within the same lesson or the next math session.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

How long will this activity take?

Time to complete will vary anywhere between 30mins - 2 hours or more! It mainly depends on how familiar your students are with the math mystery format, as well as how difficult they find math skills covered in the particular mystery. Please check the math skills outlined in the clues above to help determine suitability for your class.
