This Mock Crime Scene Webquest addresses the following New York State Standards in the area of Math, Science and Technology:
1. Standard 2- Information Systems
Describe applications of information technology in mathematics, science, and other technologies that address needs and solve problems in the community.
2. Standard 7- Connections
Analyze science/technology/society problems and issues at the local level and carry out a remedial course of action.
3. Standard 7-Strategies Students participate in an extended, culminating mathematics, science, and technology project. The project would require students to:
Working Effectively: Contributing to the work of a brainstorming group, laboratory partnership, cooperative learning group, or project team; planning procedures; identify and managing responsibilities of team members; and staying on task, whether working alone or as part of a group.
Gathering and Processing Information: Accessing information from printed media, electronic data bases, and community resources and using the information to develop a definition of the problem and to research possible solutions.
Generating and Analyzing Ideas: Developing ideas for proposed solutions, investigating ideas, collecting data, and showing relationships and patterns in the data.
Common Themes: Observing examples of common unifying themes, applying them to the problem, and using them to better understand the dimensions of the problem.
Realizing Ideas: Constructing components or models, arriving at a solution, and evaluating the result.
Presenting Results: Using a variety of media to present the solution and to communicate the results.
