What happens when the most recognizable voice in the world is mysteriously murdered? They hire a team of Crime Scene Investigators to solve the puzzle. Using the idea of Pythagorean theorem, the Pythagorean converse, and simple ratios of side to side relationships (constructing the idea of Pythagorean theorem ) the students engage in the math as they try to uncover the truth behind which celebrity may have been the culprit.
This is the introductory setup for the activity. There are two other pieces to use: 1) The Crime Scene report form where they show their thinking and "paint" a picture of the scene, and 2) an activity sheet which contains the information, suspects, and directions.
