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.

**CSI: Geometry – Shapes, Lines & Angles (Unit 1)**

__Name:__**7-12 (Primarily Geometry math skills)**

__Suggested Grade Level:__**Distance and Midpoint, Perimeter, Polygons, Writing Equations of Lines, Parallel Lines**

__Interdisciplinary Connections:__**2-5 Days with Optional Jury Presentation**

__Teaching Duration:__**$5 for a 12 Page PDF and Answer Key**

__Cost:__**Students build a criminal case versus a suspect using evidence from six “crime scenes”. Optional: Jury Presentation of Evidence in front of the class.**

__The Product:__What?! I can be engaged for two years now? With rigorous practice? Pinch me! |

CSI: Algebra quickly became my most popular 21st Century Math Project on TPT and remains on the top. I’ve shared my projects with a number of teachers, but no lessons get them giddy like my CSI Projects. There’s just something innate and fun about solving the puzzles and solving the crime. And with Math!

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!

Keep your eyes open for the second ever

__Free for Three,__**post. For three hours, I will make a surprise item in my store free. If you show up at the three hours and two minute mark, you will pay -- literally. It'd be super awesome if you'd follow me on Pinterest and extra amazing fantastic if you put a review on TPT!**__Boomdiggy__.
