### PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Colouring + Polynomials = Awesomeness. This includes a complete class set of 25 worksheets / colouring pages (yeah.. I'm Canadian!) that combine to create the Spiderman mosaic. Every single worksheet is different, so you can count on hearing great math dialog between your students. And no worries for you... I've included the full answer key AND complete SOLUTION KEY. You can make this available to students to self-assess their work (using the task for review or practice), or keep it for your own assessment purposes if you're markin' for keeps.

ALSO CHECK OUT... brand new: Colouring by Polynomial Functions which covers average and instantaneous rate of change, and polynomial division / Remainder Theorem, as well as function notation and evaluating polynomial expressions for specific inputs.

MATH INVOLVED:
◾Students evaluate polynomial functions for inputs in their domains
◾Each problem gives a set of 1 to 3 functions like this:
{h(x)= -5x-3, m(x)= 5x²+22x-1, j(x)= -3x²-5x}
And are asked to evaluate something like this:
h^-1(-5) + m(-3) - j(1)
◾Inverse functions are used in linear cases randomly about 40% of the time
◾Students gain practice with exponent and integer laws (yes senior students still make those mistakes!) and general order of operation skills when simplifying a multi-step expression.

I'd love to hear your feedback and your students' response to this task. If you're not yet following me on TpT, I'd click the button right now to ensure you'll receive notifications of new products as they launch. I plan to venture deeper in the function realm, including function composition, non-polynomial functions, and Calculus polynomial derivatives perhaps.

In the mean time, there is plenty of colouring to be had! Check out the other "Colouring by..." products, sorted by topic (Trig, systems, equations, annuities, measurement, volume and surface area... the list is growing!)

These tasks ensure individual accountability (since every worksheet is different) while harnessing collaborative motivation (since every worksheet is needed for the mosaic). The end result will look spectacular hanging up in your classroom, and your students will be proud!

It's simple!
2. Colour the squares.
4. Combine with the class!

INCLUDED:
◾ .pdf and .docx versions of everything
◾ Complete 25-sheet class set of worksheets
◾ Teaching Tips page, for smooth implementation :)
◾ Complete answer keys for all worksheets
◾ Complete Solution Key showing steps taken to reach each answer
◾ 'Colour-Range' answer key for quick at-a-glance assessment. e.g. Blue [0, 2), Red [-4, -2) ...
◾ Every worksheets contains its answers randomized at the bottom, helping the student self-assess his/her work

The student buy-in factor is HUGE with these worksheets; they all want to see the finished picture come together!

Leave the picture a secret or show it for motivation… it’s your call.

All my “Colouring by…” worksheets use standard pencil-crayon colours found in the Crayola 24 pack. For best results, use the exact colour name match (and encourage quality colouring!). Perhaps a class set of pencil crayons would be a fun math department investment!

Feedback, suggestions, and frontline stories are always welcomed!

Thanks for checking this out! Enjoy!
