## Welcome to the Math Riddle Book

Practice makes perfect! That's why teachers and parents know that math
worksheets can provide the drill-and-practice kids need to master basic math
concepts.
I created The Math Riddle Book for two purposes:
1. To create a complete collection of drill-and-practice math pages that can
provide kids with the practice they need to master addition, subtraction,
multiplication, and division.
2. To make learning math more fun for students! Unlike traditional
worksheets, each page in the Math Riddle book features a funny riddle for
kids to solve. These math worksheets are more like motivating puzzles
than boring math worksheets, which is why kids become more excited
I originally created these worksheets to use with students in my own classroom.
I would give them a math riddle page each week on the back-side of their
homework assignments. And I noticed something... kids were actually excited to
do their homework! As soon as I'd pass out a riddle worksheet, they eagerly put
their pencils to the paper and began working!
Parents began to write me notes saying that their children were doing their
homework as soon as they got off the school bus-- without adults nagging them!
And, best of all, because they were practicing basic arithmetic on a regular basis,
their math skills dramatically improved! My students could recall basic math facts
more quickly, their computation became more accurate, and their scores on the
state math test skyrocketed!
That's why I decided to compile my math riddle worksheets into a book and share
them with you!
the math skills they'll need throughout their lives. I wish you, and your students,
great success!
