**What are Mini-Math Mysteries?**

Mini-Math Mysteries is a fun, game-like, one-page activity for practicing math skills. It is a condensed version of a mystery and follows a simple elimination structure, where students use their answers to eliminate possibilities. The mystery story is short (a couple of sentences to a paragraph), and unlike my regular mysteries, there are no clue messages or video hooks for these. I've designed these for educators who want something quick and short to assign to students while keeping it fun! It's a great way to sneak in some extra math practice daily.
