    Here are Team Spooky's comments for the geocaching project: -Super fun! -Make sure teachers look over equations etc. and that gravestones are clearly marked (writing is not faded) -No boxes higher than 10 feet in a tree :) - Definitely do it for other math classes in the future!
    Overall my group had a fun day doing the treasure hunt. I loved doing things in teams and found that three was the perfect group size. I was really glad that on the treasure hunt day that it was dress-down day because it would have been a bit of a struggle doing in the exercise in work-pants and not in sneakers. One thing that my group had trouble with was the GPS as we found that we couldn't get it to be exact. Also the math equations were difficult because the group was too cryptic, proposing solutions such as "mjs death" which we later found out meant michael Jackson.Otherwise, it was a fun experience and I definitely think you should do it again (but perhaps no one will be tree climbing next time)

    Create a math puzzle that uses each of the three graves and leads the person to the final treasure location. You may be creative here and use dates on the headstone or create a puzzle with the GPS coordinates; and
    The team captain should complete this wiki worksheet with GPS locations, the FINAL location, AND the puzzle for publication. You may be clever in the wording, but the math should be impeccable.

    The Haunted Box
    It was the eve of Halloween, and Herbert Clyde was going to visit the grave of his wife as he did every other night of the year. Tonight was a particularly special night, however, because it marked the one year anniversary of her murder. To honor the occasion, Herbert brought a box of her dearest belongings. On his way down the long dirt pathway to her tomb, Herbert began to feel as if he was being watched. Nevertheless, he continued walking, desperately trying to convince himself that he was only nervous because it was Halloween. Little did he know that his suspicions were true…
    Suddenly, a huge cloud of white mist envelops Herbert and he is unable to see anything in front of him. His heart races as he squints to see a glowing green figure coming towards him. As it comes closer, he realizes that the ghost of his wife’s murderer is now running at him aggressively. In his panic, Herbert drops the box and looks to see where it rolls without stopping, running for his life, trying to navigate his way through the fog.
    When he wakes the next morning, Herbert finds himself lying on the floor of a padded white room in an insane asylum. After escaping the ghost, Herbert went mad and local townspeople were afraid for their children. They reported him to the police and he was checked into the local mental institution.
    Not even a day later, Herbert is found dead in his room surrounded by a pool of blood. He had used his eating utensils to impale himself and write delirious messages on the white walls before he bled to death.
    The police assume that the messages disclose the possible location of the box of belongings, and now you must find out the truth!
