Grade 5 Main Idea CCSS: CCRA.R.2, RI.5.2
The Babylonians were the first to set the measurement of a full circle at 360 degrees. They reasoned that the most important circle is the revolution of the earth around the sun, a period of time which we call a year. They knew that a year was approximately 365 days. However, the number 360 is much more convenient for mathematical computation, since it is divisible by many factors-- among them, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 8, 9, 10, and 12.

Police depend on evidence to solve crimes. Forensic scientists collect evidence to solve many different kinds of mysteries, including robberies, missing persons, and murders. Examining the crime scene with precise methods, they collect hair, fibers, trash, and many other tiny bits of material which help them determine the individual who committed the crime. They are particularly interested in evidence, such as fingerprints, that can be linked to a specific person.
