In this Grade 5 version, the 5 clues cover the following skills:
- Clue 1: Covert Decimals from Expanded Form (using fractions)
- Clue 2: Adding Decimals (wholes & tenths)
- Clue 3: Subtracting Decimals (wholes & tenths)
- Clue 4: Multiply Numbers Ending in Zeroes

MIX & MATCH ACROSS GRADE LEVELS TO DIFFERENTIATE/CUSTOMIZE
You can choose a grade level that suits your class best, and/or mix and match across the same clue numbers (except for the Grade 1 Version) to differentiate and customize the math mystery for your students. The Grade 1 version is simplified as a whole and cannot be mixed with the rest. (For example, swap clue 1 from the Grade 2 version to clue 1 from the Grade 3 version to make that part more challenging for some students.)

An engaging 5 part mystery that tests the students’ skills of adding and subtracting with whole numbers and tenths, together with some other place value questions. Ideal to ensure the basic skills are secure.
