Harness the motivating power of collaboration while maintaining individual accountability! Every students worksheet is different, yet similar in the type of problems asked. When students answer all the math problems, they use their answers to colour-by-number their small section of the larger mosaic! Great for Pi Day...

(This mosaic is also available as part of an Einstein bundle, alongside a 32-sheet trig mosaic, and 25-sheet quadratic mosaic. click here to go to the bundle)

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

◾ Everything comes in both .docx and .pdf format
◾ full class set of 35 worksheets, every sheet unique! Worksheets combine to create the Einstein mosaic
◾ Complete answer key, giving the answers for all worksheets (easy assessment!)
◾ Teaching Tips page for smooth implementation in your class
◾ Coloured mosaic guide for easy assembly
◾ Scrambled answers list at the bottom of each student's worksheet, allowing for self assessment.
◾ Handy formulas provided on students' worksheets
◾ "Order of Problems" sequence that each worksheet follows

This makes a great unit summative task!
Here's the list of the order of questions each worksheet contains: (Check out the product preview to see sample worksheets and know exactly what this task involves!)

Problem Order:
1) Soh Cah Toa - side
2) sine law - find side
3) Soh Cah Toa - angle
4) cosine law - find side
5) special angles - degrees, full circle
6) special angles - degrees, full circle
7) sine law - find angle
8) Soh Cah Toa - side, from diagram
9) cosine law - find angle
10) Soh Cah Toa - angle, from diagram
11) special angles - degrees, full circle
12) special angles - degrees, full circle

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!

Leave the picture a secret or show it for motivation… it’s your call.

Encourage students to check all their answers by finding them in the scrambled list at the bottom of their worksheet before they colour. This will increase the accuracy of the final picture!

All my collaborative math mosaics use standard pencil-crayon colours found in the Crayola 24 pack. For best results, use the exact colour name match, colour darkly, and stick to one colouring medium (i.e. don't mix crayons with markers with pencil crayons...). Perhaps a class set of pencil crayons would be a fun math department investment!

Feedback, suggestions, and frontline stories are always welcomed!
