This activity require NO PREP. Student and teacher documents included.
It is a riddle worksheet in which students use an answer bank to solve a (slightly cheesy) joke. They like this activity because it makes the math meaningful and FUN. Teachers like it because the answer bank gives students a tool to self-assess.
Because of the answer bank for students and answer sheet for teachers, this activity is great for homeschool and special education students too!

Drill but don’t kill. In this activity, students must match each table to either a linear or exponential function that generated the data. It is wise for them to notice first if the rate of change is a constant amount (linear) or a constant percentage (exponential) before they look for the actual function.
PLEASE REMEMBER TO RATE THIS FUNSHEET!
