Today you took a weekly skills check quiz. Then we took notes on forgery and fraud. Then we watched Catch Me If You Can, a movie based on the real life person, Frank Abagnale, Jr. who committed fraud in the 1960s, was caught, and ended up working for the FBI.
On Friday, you took the unit 2A Test on fingerprints, hair, and fiber evidence.
On Monday, I was not in class so you read Chapter 18 on questioned documents and worked on the review questions (#1 – 30) at the end of the chapter.
Today we did the first 2 parts of the hair evidence lab. We looked at our own hairs and then we looked at crime scene evidence and matched it to one of 4 suspects or the victim. Tomorrow we will look at animal hair evidence
Today you completed the latent fingerprint lab where you developed prints using fluorescent powder, magnetic powder, ninhydrin, iodine fuming, and superglue fuming. If you missed the lab, do this alternative below.
Also, due on Monday are all the hair related questions on p.483-487, Review Questions #1 – 25 and Application and Critical Thinking Questions # 1- 7.
Today you took notes on fingerprints and used fingerprint powder to lift latent prints. If you are in 4th period, you need to write down/read the rest of the fingerprint notes that were posted to the blog yesterday. Be prepared to answer questions on it.
