Each worksheet represents a small section of the big picture! This task ensures individual accountability (every worksheet is different) while harnessing collaborative motivation (Every worksheet is needed for the mosaic). The end result will look spectacular hanging up in your classroom, and your students will be proud!

Students solve their equations to decode the colour-key, then use it to colour their worksheet, representing a small section of the larger Pumpkin Pi mosaic. Their sheets combine like magic!
1. Calculate the answers.
2. Colour the squares.
3. Cut out your section.
4. Combine with the class!

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!
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 Math Mosaics 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!
