Maths Resource of the Week 2


Murder Mystery

Visit Mr Barton Math’s profile page

  • A challenging mystery to engage your students and get them thinking logically
  • What is it? - Mysteries are one of the greatest and most powerful lesson resources around. They are fun to teach, students absolutely love doing them, and best of all loads and loads of maths gets done without anybody ever actually realising it. Mysteries also help promote invaluable skills like team-work, communication, logical thinking and problem solving. This is a fantastic murder mystery which helps test and develop students’ skills of code breaking and co-ordinates.
  • How could it be used? - Mysteries lend themselves perfectly to group work. This particular one is probably best suited to a year 7 or 8 group or a low ability year 9. Arrange the students into groups of 3 or 4, read the hints, give out the clues, have the answers (and possibly a prize?) to hand, and let your class of mini detectives get cracking.
