Engaging Mathematicians with a Murder Mystery
Cloft, Kristal
Mathematics Teacher, v111 n5 p344-351 Mar 2018
Many ways exist to engage students without detracting from the mathematics. Certainly some are high-tech options, such as video games, online trivia sites, and PowerPoint® presentations that follow the same model as Jeopardy; but sometimes low-tech options can be just as powerful. One exciting way to connect with students is by incorporating holidays that they celebrate into your lessons. The Murder Mystery activity that the author did with her students near Halloween is one such example.
