This is an APP based investigation for Maths. The title is 'Bringing the criminals to justice: Burgulary' and is about a man robbing a bank with a banana and makes off with money. It's up to the students to prove a suspect is guilty whilst answering questions based on the APP Level 5 - Using and applying and Number. This is highly adaptable so that you can cut/add bits in and reference is made to each MA1 and MA2 point. In other words, take a look! As always, please comment and rate, and any complaints and suggestions are welcomed.

    Brilliant resource. Thank you.
    Used for G and T group - who really enjoyed using reasoning to justify their answers.
    Fitted perfectly into the teaching of C.S.I (Common Sense Investigators)
    Thank you
