This low-prep activity is an engaging way for students to practice working with quadratic functions! Students become suspects after a murder has been committed and must solve the mystery by finding roots, vertices, y-intercepts, and the axis of symmetry of quadratic functions. 

Students are given character cards when they enter the room and assume the role of a hotel guest. They must work through the clue/worksheet to clear their own name and figure out who among them is the murderer!
