The objective of this activity is to place each of the mathematical statements into the boxes labeled 'Trick' and 'Treat'. If the statement is true it should go into the 'Treat' box but if the statement is false it should go into the 'Trick' box.
When you think all statements have been placed in the appropriate box click the 'Check' button to see how successful you have been.
If all the statements are not in the correct boxes you will be notified of the fact but it is up to you to decide which statement(s) is/are in the wrong box(es).
If all statements are correctly placed you will win a Transum virtual trophy for this activity.
Each time this page is loaded a different combination of statements is presented for you to work with.
