I made this as a summative task for my small MFM1P class. Since my class is small, students can work in pairs on one sheet, then try a second independently. (Larger classes could make two pumpkins and have a colouring contest :) These whole-class colouring mosaics are quite engaging, and a good way to get even the most reluctant students to complete their homework (since the success of the picture hinges on each individual's contribution!).
1. Calculate the answers.
2. Colour the squares.
3. Cut out your section.
4. Combine with the class!
INCLUDED (PDF file):
--> Full class set 15 worksheets (all different!) that combine to create the large pumpkin mosaic.
--> Master Answer Key showing both the colour and numeric solutions for all worksheet problems.

Leave the picture a secret or show it for motivation… it’s your call.
Encourage students to check their answers by finding them in the randomized list on their worksheet before they colour each square. This will increase the accuracy of the final picture!
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!
This is a brand new product, so I’d love and appreciate any feedback, suggestions, and frontline stories you can share!!
Thanks for checking this out! Happy Thanksgiving.
