A highly engaging activity! Includes 36 different worksheets that combine to create a large mosaic! 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!

Given transformed quadratic, radical, or reciprocal equations, students must identify the value of the parameter responsible for a given description. e.g. vertical or horizontal translation, stretch or compression. They use the answer for each problem to colour their worksheets based on the colour key.

It's simple!

1. Calculate the answers.

2. Colour the squares.

3. Cut out your section.

4. Combine with the class!

INCLUDED (.docx and .pdf files in zip folder):

--> Full class set of36 worksheets (all different!) that combine to create the large mosaic.

--> Master Answer Key showing both the colour and numeric solutions for all worksheet problems.

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! 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 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 36, no worries! You could have students work in pairs to complete a sheet helping each other, then try one independently. In my experience, students are eager to do additional sheets to complete the picture! (Or you could use the answer key to fill in the missing pieces quickly.)

Thanks for checking this out!

Compare properties of two functions each represented in a different way (algebraically, graphically, numerically in tables, or by verbal descriptions). For example, given a graph of one quadratic function and an algebraic expression for another, say which has the larger maximum.
Write a function defined by an expression in different but equivalent forms to reveal and explain different properties of the function.
Graph functions expressed symbolically and show key features of the graph, by hand in simple cases and using technology for more complicated cases.
