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!
Students are given 10 different financial scenarios and asked to find the interest rate necessary to produce each. In the process they solve the joke "What do you call a go-go dancing pig?"
They build conceptual and technical skills around exponential growth and solving equations using roots.
