Description

Multiplication Math Mystery: Case of The Monster Mix-Up. Engage and motivate your students to review their multiplication skills with this fun math mystery activity.

Easy prep! Just Print & Solve! Or go paperless with the new Google Slides option provided within your download.

NEW - Distance Learning Update: I've added a Word Document within the folder that contains a Google Doc link to share this resource with your students via Google Classroom or Drive. Parts of the pages are editable so that your students can complete without having to print the pages. Please note, you will need to make a copy of the Google Slides to your drive before you can edit.

Optional Video Hook also provided to introduce the activity. Click on the link below to view it for FREE.

Editable Suspect list added to the packet. This way you can change the monster names and alter the mystery outcome. There are also two alternative pre-made lists you can use instead. This is a great option if your students have already done this mystery story before and you need to change the mystery answer.

Students must use their multiplication skills to eliminate monster suspects to solve who needs to be arrested for the scare crimes in Mathhattan!

There are 5 clues to crack to solve the mystery:

Clue 1 Worksheet: Mixed Multiplication Facts (1-12)

Clue 2 Worksheet: More Mixed Multiplication Facts (1-12)

Clue 3 Worksheet: Missing Factors

Clue 4 Worksheet: Multiplication Word Problems (1-12)

Clue 5 Worksheet: Multiplication Input/output Tables (apply the multiplication rule given to the numbers in the table)

Pack also includes a mystery declaration sheet, answer sheets, elimination guide and awards.

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. I highly 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. New math content presented? Make a lesson out of it by modeling the math before diving into the clue. I like to say, "we must learn something new before attempting the next clue." There are lots of ways to implement this activity in your classroom, learn more in the blog post link below:

Great for review, math centers, extra practice, enrichment, homework, the sub tub, or early finishers,

The Case of the Monster Mix-Up is also available in the following grade editions. Check out the skills and select a level that suits your class best.

Differentiation Tip: Clue swap across grade levels to adjust the mystery with skills to suit student needs. As long as the clue number being swapped is the same, the mystery will work the same.

Fluently multiply and divide within 100, using strategies such as the relationship between multiplication and division (e.g., knowing that 8 × 5 = 40, one knows 40 ÷ 5 = 8) or properties of operations. By the end of Grade 3, know from memory all products of two one-digit numbers.
Determine the unknown whole number in a multiplication or division equation relating three whole numbers. For example, determine the unknown number that makes the equation true in each of the equations 8 × ? = 48, 5 = __ ÷ 3, 6 × 6 = ?.
Use multiplication and division within 100 to solve word problems in situations involving equal groups, arrays, and measurement quantities, e.g., by using drawings and equations with a symbol for the unknown number to represent the problem.
