Like my Algebra projects, students will work in teams to investigate the culprit of six fictional thefts. The criminal has left six messages, layered with geometry practice. Teams will work to build a case and present their findings to the court. Hopefully they are convincing enough to win the verdict.
|What?! I can be engaged for two|
years now? With rigorous practice?
I had fans (well 4 or 5 people) ask my about when I'd expand the puzzles to other courses. So I have used my winter break to dive face-first into Geometry.
|The big three!|
|Bring your own vuvuzela to school!|
This project would fit nicely into a Middle School or high school Geometry class. I find that these serve well as Chapter Reviews before Tests. Do be careful about how you assign it though, given the problems unique nature, students can be confused about what to do. Given the level of your class you can drop hints and differentiate as needed. My guarantee, you’re best, nerdiest math students will love it!
