It is a set of 3 riddle worksheets 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 radicals (square roots) and how to simplify them with just numbers and when they have numbers and variables.
