Many people think that showing a student once how to correct the mistake and having them practice that one problem is sufficient. WRONG! It will take having the student do hundreds of similar problems correctly with constant supervision to replace the incorrect method in the brain. Many freshmen enter Algebra with learned multiplication mistakes-the most common of which is 7 x 8 = 54. (I will trust that you know the correct answer is 56.) These mistakes that students bring into Algebra have been practiced so many times by the time the students arrive in high school, that the students often do not even believe they made any mistakes. And the Algebra teacher does not have the time it takes to fix these errors.
These worksheets had puns or puzzle questions at the top, and as the students worked the problems they were given some kind of code for choosing a letter to match that answer. If they worked the problems correctly, the letters eventually answered the pun or riddle. Students enjoyed these worksheets, but there are a couple problem areas even with these worksheets. Some students would get the answer to the riddle early and then work backward from letter to problem answer, so they were not learning or practicing anything.
