### Description

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!

Students solve for an unknown part, whole, or percent in each given proportion statement, then use the answers to colour their worksheets based on the colour key. It's simple...

2. Colour the squares.
4. Combine with the class!

INCLUDED (PDF file):
--> Full class set of 25 worksheets (all different!) that combine to create the 'Red Dog' mosaic.
-->Worksheets involve a range of part/whole/percent problems (See thumbnail image for a zoomed in example from a worksheet).
--> Master Answer Key showing both the colour and numeric solution for all worksheet problems.

This product builds the skills of working with percentages, and serves as good preparation for application problems (tax, discounts, sales, mark-ups, etc.) It fits into the U.S. Common Core Standards for grade 6 and 7 involving ratios & proportional reasoning. For the Canadian Ontario Curriculum, it applies to the grade 9 applied course, and to all the Essential and Workplace level courses, were percentages appear in a variety of contexts.

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! Older students love colouring too! This sure beats textbook homework!

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 25, no worries! You could hand out some duplicate worksheets (if you have more than 25 students) and decide which to display in the big picture once they're coloured. Or, you could have some students work pairs (differentiated learning!). If you’re under 25 students, 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)

This is a brand new product, so I’d love and appreciate any feedback, suggestions, and frontline stories you can share!!

Thanks for checking this out!

### Standards

to see state-specific standards (only available in the US).
Use proportional relationships to solve multistep ratio and percent problems. Examples: simple interest, tax, markups and markdowns, gratuities and commissions, fees, percent increase and decrease, percent error.
Find a percent of a quantity as a rate per 100 (e.g., 30% of a quantity means 30/100 times the quantity); solve problems involving finding the whole, given a part and the percent.
