  1. Harness the motivating power of collaboration while maintaining individual accountability with a Collaborative Math Mosaic! Every student is responsible for a small section of the large mosaic. When the work is done, they put their coloured sheets together to see the magic happen! Please check ou

Here's a mathy twist on an epic battle of justice! Two 12-sheet mosaics are included (Batman and Superman), so you can split up your students and have a fraction colouring showdown! Do the heroes share a common denominator? Will one reduce to a fraction of his former glory? ...May the best coloured hero win!

Each mosaic consists of 12 unique worksheets involving the addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division of positive rational numbers, given as proper fractions. The answers are given in a randomized list at the bottom of each sheet, allowing students to monitor their own work.

CHECK OUT THE PRODUCT PREVIEW to see the range of problem types and know exactly what these worksheets involve!

Students solve the fraction problems, then use the answers to colour their worksheets based on the colour key. Their sheets combine to create the hero mosaics!

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

Complete answer keys are provided for both mosaics! Both a visual answer key showing the completed mosaic, with labelled coordinates (to help you assemble the picture from the combined worksheets), and a numeric answer key for each individual worksheet.

The Superman vs Batman battle is also available in the following versions:
Linear Systems - substitution, elimination, and graphing
Sine and Cosine Laws - solve for sides and angles
Trig Ratios (SohCahToa) - solve for sides and angles
Pythagorean Theorem - word problems and life applications

The student buy-in factor is HUGE with these worksheets; they all want to see the finished picture come together! High school students love colouring too! This sure beats textbook homework!

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

Leave the hero pictures a secret, or let them know their team in advance 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!

Feedback, suggestions, and frontline stories are always welcomed!

Thanks for checking this out!

Apply and extend previous understandings of multiplication and division and of fractions to multiply and divide rational numbers.
Apply and extend previous understandings of addition and subtraction to add and subtract rational numbers; represent addition and subtraction on a horizontal or vertical number line diagram.
Interpret and compute quotients of fractions, and solve word problems involving division of fractions by fractions, e.g., by using visual fraction models and equations to represent the problem. For example, create a story context for (2/3) ÷ (3/4) and use a visual fraction model to show the quotient; use the relationship between multiplication and division to explain that (2/3) ÷ (3/4) = 8/9 because 3/4 of 8/9 is 2/3. (In general, (𝘢/𝘣) ÷ (𝘤/𝘥) = 𝘢𝘥/𝘣𝘤.) How much chocolate will each person get if 3 people share 1/2 lb of chocolate equally? How many 3/4-cup servings are in 2/3 of a cup of yogurt?
