CSI: Algebra — The Real Number System — Distance Learning Compatible from Clark Creative Math on Teachers Pay Teachers
Nothing like a good criminal investigation to liven up number sense! In this project, students will work in teams to investigate the culprit of six fictional thefts. The criminal has left six messages, layered with algebra. Teams will work to build a case and present their findings to the court. Hopefully they are convincing enough to win the verdict.
I like to use these puzzles as review before the unit test. The puzzle solving hook causes many different students to engage in solving traditionally mundane problems. Be the cool teacher 🙂
In this 20 page document you will be given a mapping to the Content Standards, an outline for how to implement the project, and six crime scene puzzles.
This puzzle includes problems featuring the following skills: The Real Number System, Properties of Real Numbers, Irrational Numbers, Square Root Approximations and Perfect Squares and Cubes.
An answer key has been added to the end of the file for your convenience.

Current Events Worksheet for Middle & High School – FREE from Mr. Hoffarth on Teachers Pay Teachers
A worksheet containing questions that can accompany any current events news article. Students may select their own article, or teachers can print the article they wish to have the students evaluate. I developed this worksheet for use in my own 8th grade Social Studies class. This exercise helps students identify the main issues of a news article, the moral question of the article (if present), as well as to consider any possible bias in the writing of the article. The worksheet concludes by asking students to share their own opinions on the article discussed. This worksheet would be appropriate for Middle and High School Students.
