Hello fellow educators and math enthusiasts,
I am on the hunt for entertaining and thought-provoking mathematical riddles suitable for a classroom setting. My objective is to find riddles that not only captivate the students' interest but also sharpen their problem-solving skills.
Could you please share the most humorous or intriguing math riddle you've encountered? Additionally, I'm interested in any books or resources that compile such mathematical puzzles. If you know of any "What is...?" type riddles that are particularly engaging, I'd love to hear about those as well.
Furthermore, I'm curious about the pedagogical impact of using mathematical riddles as a teaching tool. Are there any studies or research findings on how such riddles can enhance learning or engagement in the classroom?
Thank you for your insights and recommendations!

being a little bit mor precise: I am searching for clever riddles that would be suitable for use in a stand-up comedy routine.
