A highly engaging task combining individual accountability with collaborative motivation! 3 versions are included! Colouring meets Trigonometry in this class-wide math mosaic that will look spectacular hanging up in your classroom :) Each worksheet represents a small section of the big picture!

CHECK OUT THE PRODUCT PREVIEW to see the range of problem types, and to know exactly what these worksheets involve!

The Link mosaic is also available in a 24 Sheet Version for larger class sizes.

◾8 solving for side
◾7 solving for angle

◾7 simple problems, solving for sides and angles
◾8 trickier problems (where drawing sketch helps) solving for sides and angles

◾15 randomly assorted word problems solving for the hypotenuse or a leg of a right triangle

It's simple!
1. Calculate the answers.
2. Colour the squares.
3. Cut out your section.
4. Combine with the class!

INCLUDED (.pdf and .docx of everything):
--> Three versions of 12 worksheets (all different!) that combine to create the Link mosaic!

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!

Imagine if your students were the ones policing homework completion? "Common Jenny! 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 stick with the same colouring medium (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 12, no worries! You could buy the 24 sheet version instead, or hand out some duplicate worksheets and decide which to display in the big picture once they're coloured. Or, if your class is smaller than 12 (lucky you!) you could have some students work pairs (differentiated learning!) or use the answer key to fill in the missing pieces quickly.

Feedback, suggestions, and frontline stories are always welcomed!

Thanks for checking this out!
