2. Sketches of the scene are important because they show the relationship of each item of evidence to other items/the body. Photos offer more detail than a video. A sketch artist might note a specific detail that might not be seen that will help find the suspect in a crime; also, sketches provide the exact graphic coordinates of an item.
3. At a minimum, areas that a crime scene will include are the exact spot where the offense took place, areas from which the site can be entered, exited, or escaped, and locations of key pieces of evidence.
4. Math skills relate to crime scene investigations because in both, thinking is involved, as well as planning, to find the right answer, or in this case, the suspect. Also, investigators look at all pieces of evidence in a crime scene, and we as students look at all the clues in a word problem when we try to figure it out. For example, an investigator might use the distance formula when figuring out how many steps the suspect took from point X to point Y. Or, he\she might use trigonometry for finding out angles, like how wide the door was open when the suspect escaped.
5. Math is important.
1. In photographs, how might a crime scene investigator indicate the scale of evidence found?
A crime scene investigator might indicate the scale of evidence in photos by using common tools like cigarette packs, ballpoint pens, or car keys as points of reference. They also use rulers, probably for measuring.
2. Why is it important to create sketches of a scene (instead of using only photos and video)? What might a sketch artist note? Sketches of the scene are important because they show the relationship of each item of evidence to other items/the body. Photos offer more detail than a video. A sketch artist might
