It is a riddle worksheet where students have an answer bank and they use that to solve a (slightly cheesy) joke. Kids like this activities because they make the math meaningful, and FUN, and teachers like them because the answer bank gives students a tool to self-assess.
Because of answer banks for students and answer sheets for adults, this activity is great for homeschool and special ed students too!
In this particular worksheet, students learn about arithmetic sequences and series by finding the nth term and finding the sum of n terms.
