“Calculate. Colour. Cut. Combine!”

Engage your WHOLE Class in an algebra colouring quest to create a collaborative ‘math mosaic’, revealing the big picture!

Every student gets a different worksheet representing a small piece of the bigger picture. Students complete the math problems, colouring each square according to the answer colour legend (i.e "Blue: 2 ≤ x < 7"). When the work is done, the coloured sheets are put together to reveal a large pixel image (Mario).

INCLUDED in this Colouring by Algebra edition:

-> Class set of 20 unique worksheets (PDF file).

-> Each worksheet contains 16 two-set linear equations, requiring addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, and sometimes distributing.

->Master Answer Key showing the colour and numeric answer for all worksheets (Use this to help you assemble the big picture!)

If you like this product, be sure the check out the whole Collaborative Math Mosaic directory, sorted by topic!

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

Imagine if your students were the ones policing homework completion? "Common Josh! Do your work or we'll have a hole in our picture!"

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!

If your class size doesn’t line up with 20, no worries! You could hand some duplicate worksheets out and decide which to display in the big picture once they're coloured. Or have students work together. If you’re under 20 students, in my experience, students were eager to do additional sheets to complete the picture!

This is a brand new product, so I’d love and appreciate any feedback, suggestions, and frontline stories you can share!! Stay tuned for many more “Colouring by…” products.

Solve linear equations and inequalities in one variable, including equations with coefficients represented by letters.
Solve linear equations with rational number coefficients, including equations whose solutions require expanding expressions using the distributive property and collecting like terms.
Solve word problems leading to equations of the form 𝘱𝘹 + 𝘲 = 𝘳 and 𝘱(𝘹 + 𝘲) = 𝘳, where 𝘱, 𝘲, and 𝘳 are specific rational numbers. Solve equations of these forms fluently. Compare an algebraic solution to an arithmetic solution, identifying the sequence of the operations used in each approach. For example, the perimeter of a rectangle is 54 cm. Its length is 6 cm. What is its width?
