A body has been found and the police suspect it is murder. They need your help in identifying key pieces of evidence in order to identify the murderer from their list of suspects... This activity requires students visiting three locations - the crime scene, mortuary and forensic laboratory and use algebra at each location. Students get exposed to formulas that are used in forensic science
Students investigate a suspicious death using their knowledge of formulae and quadratic equations (plotting, substitution and solving). A real life application of algebra for your students.If you like this activity please take a look at my other Crime Scene Algebra activity.
I just checked out this free site. I really liked the ten frame activity for my whiteboard. I plan to use this in class next week. For more pins like this visit: http://pinterest.com/kindkids/making-math-meaningful-charlotte-s-clips/
