Student of ALL ages love to draw and color… especially in Math Class!
Math Mugshots are a GREAT way to review math concepts while providing some “color” to math class. You can use this activity to review for a test, as a homework assignment, as extra credit, or as an assessment.
Mathematical Concepts in THIS activity:
•Find the hypotenuse of a right triangle
•Find a missing leg of a right triangle
•Find the hypotenuse of an isosceles right triangle
•Find the distance between two points on a coordinate plane
•Identify a Pythagorean Triplet
•Draw diagrams to solve real life word problems
•Find the slant height of a cone
•Find the perimeter of a right triangle
How to use this activity:
1. Hand out student worksheets and instruct students to solve each of the problems.
2. When all of the problems are solved, hand out answer sheets. Tell the students to find and highlight their answers on this sheet. This will help them to check their work and make corrections, if necessary.
3. Hand out copies of the blank “WANTED” poster. Each correct answer corresponds to specific feature of the Mugshot. Students will LOVE drawing and coloring their suspects!
4. Hint: It looks GREAT if the kids outline their pictures with a black Sharpie!
