In this super secret number puzzle, students will practice working with literal equations. Students are given an equation along with values for some of the variables. They will then solve for the indicated variable.
Students find the answers to each of the ten questions and then add their answers together – this is the super secret number. After a bit of time, I tell them what the super secret number should be. If their super secret number matches mine, they probably did their problems correctly.
As an alternative, I have also included a page with a QR Code. This QR Code leads to the super secret number. To add excitement, students can scan the QR Code instead of just having the teacher tell the class the Super Secret Number.
