### Description

This low-prep activity is an engaging way for students to practice working with systems of equations! Students become suspects after a hotel staff member is murdered. The murderer left a cluesheet and students must work together, solving the systems of equations problems on the cluesheet to figure out who the murderer is! The clue sheet includes a variety of problems, including solving systems from word problems, solving by graphing, matrices, and substitution.

Students are given character cards when they enter the room and assume the role of a bus passenger. Their leisurely trip is brought to a sudden halt when one of the passengers is found dead. They must work through the clue/worksheet to clear their own name and figure out who among them is the murderer!

to see state-specific standards (only available in the US).
Solve real-world and mathematical problems leading to two linear equations in two variables. For example, given coordinates for two pairs of points, determine whether the line through the first pair of points intersects the line through the second pair.
Solve systems of two linear equations in two variables algebraically, and estimate solutions by graphing the equations. Solve simple cases by inspection. For example, 3𝘹 + 2𝘺 = 5 and 3𝘹 + 2𝘺 = 6 have no solution because 3𝘹 + 2𝘺 cannot simultaneously be 5 and 6.
Understand that solutions to a system of two linear equations in two variables correspond to points of intersection of their graphs, because points of intersection satisfy both equations simultaneously.
Analyze and solve pairs of simultaneous linear equations.
