Activity Overview

In this activity, students will examine a map of a crime spree, similar to one Charlie makes in the episode. Students will be asked to compute the mileage between the pairs of cities along the route and make a conjecture about the location of a 'missing city' that Charlie thinks the criminals visited, but did not commit a crime.
