"Calculate, Colour, Cut & Combine!"

Your WHOLE class will be engaged in an algebra colouring quest!

For a DIGITAL multistep linear equation product, check out the new Mr & Mrs Spider Google Sheets Mosaic Battle! (here's a walk-through video to see what it looks like)

Every student gets a different worksheet representing a small piece of the bigger picture. Students complete the math problems, colouring each square according the answer. When the work is done, the coloured sheets are put together to reveal a large 'pixelated' image.


◾Everything in both .pdf format, and editable .docx format

◾Class Sets of 6 and 24 unique worksheets. The two versions are slightly different in style. The 6-sheet version has 12 problems per worksheet, while the 24-sheet version has 15 questions per worksheet)

◾Master Answer Keys for both class sizes, showing colour and numeric answer for all worksheets (Use this to help you assemble the big picture!)

◾Each worksheet contains 1-step linear equations involving positive integers, requiring addition, subtraction, multiplication, or division to solve.

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?

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 worksheets 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 stick to one colouring medium. Perhaps a class set of pencil crayons would be a fun math department investment!

I’d love and appreciate any feedback, suggestions, and frontline stories you can share!!
