A good way to grab the attention of a class is to use tricky riddles related to the subject you are teaching or to use brain teasers that correlate with their lives.

Many studies have linked the regular solving of puzzles with increased brain function and mental capacity. In turn, we start to use parts of the brain we don't usually use. With practice, it appears that these cells in our brain strengthen as our muscles do when we work out.

## I Wish Yesterday Was Tomorrow Riddle

The teacher said, "I wish yesterday were tomorrow, because today would be Friday."

On which day did the teacher say this?

On which day did the teacher say this?

Hint:

It depends. The grammar is intentionally misleading; "yesterday was" is generally considered incorrect, but is still something people say. The speaker in the riddle may mean "I wish yesterday were tomorrow" or "I wish yesterday had been tomorrow", etc. So:

I wish yesterday (Wednesday) had been what tomorrow (Friday) will be = today is Thursday.

I wish yesterday had been Thursday so tomorrow would be Friday = today is any day!

I wish yesterday (Tuesday) had been [today's] tomorrow (Thursday), so that today (Wednesday) would be Friday (day after desired yesterday).

I wish yesterday (Saturday) would be [today's] tomorrow, then today (Sunday) would be Friday.

YES NO

I wish yesterday (Wednesday) had been what tomorrow (Friday) will be = today is Thursday.

## Finding The Angles

Hint:

47

Explanation:

At first look, it seems pretty easy but on the contrary, it is pretty tricky a question. So let us simplify it by dividing the triangle into three equal triangles (the triangles so formed if outer side is connected to the center of the circle) and then count the number of triangles in each part by taking two or more parts together.

First, let us take the triangles in one part. There are 4 non-overlapping and 3 overlapping triangles.

4 + 3 = 7

7 * 3 = 21

Next, if we take number of triangles by taking two parts together, there are 8 in total.

8 * 3 = 24

Lastly, the number of triangles if all three parts are taken together, there are a total of 2.

21 + 24 + 2 = 47.

YES NO
