## Mrs J's MATH MYSTERIES

**Math Mysteries are an easy prep activity that makes math fun at the same time! There are five 'clue' math mystery worksheets to unlock in every case file. The clues are needed to narrow down a list of possible suspects, locations, cure, and or scenarios until only one remains. The last possibility remaining on the list, if done correctly, is the solution to the mystery!**

In your download, you will receive six different files of "Case of The Super Bad Superhero." Each file is for a different grade level (Common Core Aligned) for you to choose from. You can differentiate with these packets across the multiple grade levels by swapping across the same clue numbers in the Grades 2-6 versions. The Grade 1 version must be used on its own due to the simplification of the overall mystery and clues.

## What is a math mystery?

__Math Mystery Preparation__- No Prep required! Print the student pages, staple or place

in a folder, and your students are set to go.

- Have the video hook ready for viewing at the start of the

lesson on an IWB, iPad or computer monitor screen.

****Multiple Uses

- Suitable for independent, pairs, or group work.

- Use as part of your math centers, add to your sub tubs, make it part of your early finisher tasks, give for homework, or make it part of your classroom practice/review sessions.

I recommend pacing this activity by giving students one clue at a time. Once the whole class has completed a clue, then move on to the next clue either within the same lesson or the next math session. New math content presented? Make a lesson out of it by modeling the math before diving into the clue. I like to say, "we must learn something new before attempting the next clue." Check out the blog post -
