CSI Algebra - Writing and Using Formulae

CSI Algebra - Writing and Using Formulae

Here's a real life CSI application of algebra for your students.... Students have to solve a murder investigation using formulae (writing and substituting). They have to gather evidence at three locations: the crime scene, mortuary and forensic laboratory. Once they have collected their evidence, they examine a suspect list to identify the murderer. Crime scene – The suspect has left muddy boot prints at the crime scene. Students have to measure the boot print and step length to determine the suspect’s height. Mortuary – Students have to determine the time of death using body temperature. Forensic Laboratory – The victim died from chronic arsenic poisoning. Students have to determine for how long the victim was poisoned for. Answers included. Here are some other crime scene activities you may be interested in: Crime Scene Algebra - Using Formulae and Linear Regression Crime Scene Algebra - Using Formulae & Quadratic Equations

Hypothesis Test for a Population Mean - Analogy to a Criminal Trial

Hypothesis Test for a Population Mean - Analogy to a Criminal Trial

This is a student workbook that can supplement lessons on hypothesis tests for a population mean. I teach the stages of hypothesis testing using analogies to a criminal trial. My students like this comparison; they are more engaged and it helps them to see the relevance of the different stages. Once students are confident with the terminology, we create our own courtroom in the classroom and role-play the stages of hypothesis testing with students acting as the jury, prosecution, judge and defence. Contents of the workbook 1. A summary of the 5 stages of hypothesis testing 2. A detailed analogy to a criminal trial 3. One worked example 4. Space for students to complete their own examples. 5. Worksheets on: a. the null and alternative hypothesis b. type I and type II errors c. checking assumptions d. sampling distributions e. the normal distribution f. the t-distribution g. interpreting p-values Answers for worksheets provided in separate document. The preview file shows a selection of pages from the workbook.

Simplifying Expressions Colour by Number Activity

Simplifying Expressions Colour by Number Activity

This is a fun way for students to revise simplifying expressions (with multiplication signs) using a famous artist (Keith Haring) colouring sheet. Students identify the solution to each question in one of the three answer boxes. They then find the question number on the colouring sheet and colour the section in the colour that corresponds to their answer. Included in your purchase is ONE Activity: a question sheet, answer sheet and colouring sheet. I print this as an A5 booklet (also included) so that students can then glue this into their notebooks. Students can also mark their answers by comparing their colouring sheet to the original artwork. An engaging way for students to learn about algebra and art!

CSI Algebra - Using Formulae & Quadratic Equations

CSI Algebra - Using Formulae & Quadratic Equations

Here's a real life CSI application of algebra for your students.... There has been a suspicious death. Using their knowledge of formulae and quadratic equations, students have to gather evidence from the crime scene and mortuary to determine (1) who was with the victim moments before death and (2) whether the death was a tragic accident or cold-blooded murder. At the Crime Scene - The victim died after falling from a balcony. Students have to collect information on the distance of the body from the building to determine whether it was an accidental fall or murder. At the Mortuary - Students must match a bite mark left on the body with teeth impressions taken from three suspects to find out who was with the victim when he fell. Answers included.
