Who Dunnit?

I created a murder mystery for my four math classes to solve. They need to do temperature conversions, Kilogram to pounds conversions, shoe size conversions, solve math and logic problems, and even use the internet and a dictionary in order to solve the case. The winning class gets a pizza party.

It has been interesting to see the different attitudes and approaches the different classes use.

One group thought they could just make up an answer that fit all the clues and they would be done and win. Others are just siiting around while one, or two, of their team members try to solve the crime. Other groups are really into it, and are trying to figure it out. I guess you can't make everyone happy. We keep trying.

Have a great day. Stick.
