Each worksheet represents a small section of the big picture! Every single worksheet is different! The end result will look spectacular hanging up in your classroom :)
Expect student engagement and math conversations! The mosaic comes in two sizes (18 sheets and 28 sheets) to accommodate different class sizes.
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-by-number their section of big picture.
1. Calculate the answers.
2. Colour the squares.
3. Cut out your section.
4. Combine with the class!
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, where percentages appear in a variety of contexts.

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!
I’d love and appreciate any feedback, suggestions, and frontline stories you can share!!
Thanks for checking this out!
