What word or phrase is represented by the following picture?

Sample Rebus PuzzleA foot in the grave.

Puzzles like this are sometimes called Pictogram Puzzles, Word Picture Puzzles, or Hieroglyphs.

Kevin Stone at BrainBashers calls them Brain Bats.

Lots of folks refer to them as Rebus Puzzles. And while I don’t think that’s exactly right (what I think of as a rebus can be found here), that’s the word I’m going to use, too, because it’s the shortest.

Whatever. Enjoy the MJ4MF Rebus Quiz. Note that each picture is somehow mathematical, even if the answer isn’t.

If you’re a classroom teacher, the dread day-before-break is fast approaching. The MJ4MF Rebus Quiz is a great activity for students who have too much energy to sit still and too little focus to learn anything. (Permission is granted for the MJ4MF Rebus Quiz to be used with students for non-commercial educational purposes.)

The answer key and a copy of the exam can be found at http://mathjokes4mathyfolks.com/rebus.html.
