"Welcome to M.C.I.S. Headquarters! We are mathematical criminal investigation services. Criminal numbers have disguised themselves as shapes and letters, and we need your detective help to crack the cases!"
Make critical thinking fun for your students, by turning your classroom into detective headquarters! This bundles includes three cases (activities) that require high level thinking. They all involve multiplying a multi-digit number by a single digit number. One case is the simplest, and requires multiplying straight across. One center is full of multi digit multiplication story problems. The last case takes critical thinking, as it is set up like algebra problems with one number disguised as a letter.
You can use this bundle to set up thee math centers for your students to rotate through, or use the activities over a span of a few days. There is also the option to use the activities separately as you teach the different concepts involved.
