Math Riddle worksheets are the perfect way to practice new skills. Not only are the riddles clever (and occasionally funny), but they also enable the student to self-assess as they complete the puzzle. If they can’t find their answer on the worksheet or the riddle doesn’t make sense, it’s clear that they made a mistake and need to go back and check their work!
This riddle contains 12 Problems. Eight of the problems already have an equation solved for a variable and the four remaining problems require that one of the equations be solved for “x” or “y” (simple - no coefficient on the variable).
I prefer to use these worksheets as homework assignments (because they are self-checking), but they can also be used as classwork, partner/group work, or an assessment.
