Highly Engaging!!
Each worksheet represents a small section of the big picture! The end result will look spectacular hanging up in your classroom :)
CHECK OUT THE PRODUCT PREVIEW to see the range of problem types and know exactly what these worksheets involve!

Get the Mr. & Mrs. Spider BUNDLE for simple and complex quadratic fun!

INVOLVES: Factorable Complex Quadratic Equations (ax² + bx + c = 0 = 0 and ax² + bx = 0)

It's simple!
1. Calculate the answers.
2. Colour the squares.
3. Cut out your section.
4. Combine with the class!

Students complete the problems in each square of their worksheet and colour according to the answer key.

High school kids like colouring too! Their curiosity and desire to see the big picture come together will keep them working and helping each other! VIEW THE PREVIEW to see exactly what these worksheets involve!

INCLUDED (2 PDF files in zip folder):

->Complete class sets of 12 and 30 worksheets, that combine to create the Mr Spider mosaic. Sheets contain the answers scrambled so students can monitor their own understanding.
->The master answer keys for all sheets, showing the colours and numeric answers for all squares.
->Each worksheet contains 10 factorable complex quadratic equations, and the rest of the squares are filled up with easy 'one-step' linear equations.

Ontario Curriculum: This is great for MPM2D, MCF3M and MCR3U (review)!

Don't forget about Mr. Spider! He is a bit simpler than the Mrs... (x² + bx + c = 0 factorable equations)

If you like this product, be sure the check out the whole "Colouring by..." series, sorted by topic.

All my "Colouring by..." math mosaics use the standard colours found in a Crayola 24 pack of coloured pencils. For best results, use the exact colour name match. Maybe a class set of pencil crayons would be a fun departmental purchase? :)

I'd love to hear from you! Leave some feedback about how this went in your classroom.

Solve quadratic equations in one variable.
Solve quadratic equations by inspection (e.g., for 𝘹² = 49), taking square roots, completing the square, the quadratic formula and factoring, as appropriate to the initial form of the equation. Recognize when the quadratic formula gives complex solutions and write them as 𝘢 ± 𝘣𝘪 for real numbers 𝘢 and 𝘣.
