Mystery picture math worksheets

These mystery picture math worksheets are a fun way to disguise math as a fun game. Solve the math problems on the worksheets to reveal the mystery picture.

How does it work?

Each sum on the worksheet results in a number which is then filled in on a 10x10 grid of numbers from 1-100. Each additional sum solved results in another square being filled in on the answer sheet, slowly revealing a block image. When all the sums are solved, and all the correct numbers have been filled in, the mystery image is revealed.

Kids love the mystery of what the image will be, which makes working on the math problems that much more fun.

Variations available

There are 17 different mystery image products to choose from! With some, there are specific types of sums to solve, while others have a range of different types of sums to be solved. This way, you can select a product that best meets your specific students' needs.
