A bite mark found on John Wayne Gretzky's arm during the car crash investigation casts suspicion of wrongdoing. Students conduct bite mark analysis to determine if the bite mark comes from a murder victim.

  • Students take casts of their own teeth in soft wax and identify their bite pattern
  • Using the techniques presented, they develop their own personal set of objective criteria for bite mark analysis
  • With these criteria, they compare wax casts of the victims with a photo of the bite mark on John Wayne's arm to determine if it could have been made by any of the victims
  • Class size: six groups of up to five students per group
  • For high school and undergraduate courses
  • Meets National Science Education Standards
