Mastery of place value requires both good teaching and a great deal of practice. The decoding activities provided make this practice more engaging. Writing jokes within the context of other subjects allows numeracy to be supported across the curriculum.

It’s called Menseki Meiro, or Area Maze. The only maths you need to know is that the area of a rectangle is the length multiplied by the width. Students like to finish a puzzle, but they don’t always like the jokes they decode! Use the information and some logical thinking to work out the punchline to the joke (answer included).

Key words: Menseki Meiro, area maze, area, rectangle, area of a rectangle, length, multiply, divide, width, compound area, Japanese puzzle, math problem, puzzle, logical thinking. Why did the rectangle go to the gym? untangle, unlock, understand.

I've used similar problems in class and found that my students love them. From Australian year 8 through to year 11 Applications, they can become quite challenging and quite addictive.<br /> Thank you for sharing such a lovely resource.
