Dear Maths Teacher,
Welcome to our Sherlock Holmesmathematical adventure!
Set in modern day London, Sherlock Holmes has been called in by Scotland Yard to investigate the theft of the world’s largestruby, the Devil’s Eye. Stolen from Harrods, the police have nothing to go on except a few mathematical clues.
 
Your students’ challenge is to solve the clues to help Holmesand Watson work out where they must go next.
This booklet is free, fun and (best of all) closely linked to the AQA GCSE curriculum. Each Episode is presented as an extract from Holmes’ case notes. All the clues (questions) carry a GCSE gradeand an AO2/AO3 label – perfect for testing the new 2010
specication. And we’ve included worksheets and answers in this
booklet too.
Feel free to print and photocopy these pages.
