PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Math Spies is a problem solving website I created to use with my students. The original Math Spies problems were paper and pencil, but I wanted an interactive way for students to solve the types of math problems we were learning in class. Each episode has a story line that the students follow and solve the problems along the way.
Episode 5 is about function tables and using them to solve coded messages. Although this episode was originally online, I found that a paper and pencil version worked better for my students. This product is just that. It contains 28 coded messages using one and two step equations. Each of the fourteen pages is successively more difficult. A fictional scenario at the beginning of each “mission” explains the plot of this Math Spies episode. The last page has an answer key.
Students figure out and complete the pattern for each function. They determine the equation. The y value for each part of the function is paired with a letter and so the message can be decoded.
I have found that this is a motivational way to introduce and practice function tables in my classroom.
I hope you enjoy this product with your students.
