Product Description
This lesson/assessment provides an opportunity for students to use their mathematical abilities -- namely, their knowledge of scatter plots and linear regression lines -- to solve a mystery. The story lays out the scene of the crime, and students must then collect data from their peers and adults around the school, use this data to make a scatter plot, and use their scatter plot to predict who the thief is. This project has been a favorite of mine and my students' for many years -- it is easy for me to set up, clear for the students, and engaging. I use it as an assessment in place of a quiz on scatter plots and linear regression lines, but it could be modified for many purposes.
