2 Versions included: Pythagorean Theorem problems (diagrams & word problems), and Unit Rates & Proportions (multiplication patterns, cross-multiply, fraction to percent, unit rates and prices). This is a highly engaging task, as it provides collaborative motivation to complete the practice problems... every students' worksheet is a small part of the large elephant mosaic!

They use their answers to colour-by-number their section of the big mosaic.

◾ 2 mosaics, each 24 sheets
◾ Teaching Tips for smooth implementation of this task
◾ Complete answer keys for both versions providing the numeric solutions for all worksheets
◾ All worksheets have 12 problems, and every worksheet is different (individual accountability)
◾ Each worksheet contains a randomized answer list at the bottom allowing students to check their answers before colouring. (self assessment)
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!
Leave the picture a secret or show it for motivation… it’s your call.
All my colouring worksheets use standard pencil-crayon colours found in the Crayola 24 pack. For best results, encourage DARK colouring, and stick to one colouring medium. (i.e. don't mix pencil crayons with markers with finger paint!) Perhaps a class set of pencil crayons would be a fun math department investment!
Feedback, suggestions, and frontline stories are always welcomed!
