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. Also great for homeschool students because answer sheet is included!
In this activity, students eliminate the parameter t to match parametric equations to their cartesian counterparts. In the process, they solve a "joke". There are 13 problems which practice lots of balancing equations and substitution. The functions include linear, root, quadratic, cubic and cube roots.
