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 Pumpkin Pi mosaic is also available in the following versions:
Linear Equations 4-Version Bundle

Including 1-step, 2-step, multi-step, and proportions versions
Colouring by Linear Systems, and by Exponent Laws 4-Version Bundle
Including linear systems (equations), linear systems (word problems), exponent laws (just positive exponents), and exponent laws (including negative exponents) versions

◾6 solving for side problems
◾6 solving for angle problems

◾A random assortment of each trig ratio (sin, cos, or tan) involved
◾7 solving for side problems
◾ 5 solving for angle problems

◾12 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 class sets of 25 worksheets (all different!) that combine to create the Pumpkin Pi mosaic!
◾ Complete Answer Key giving the numeric solution to all problems on every worksheet
◾ A coloured picture of the mosaic with coordinates for easy assembly guidance
◾ All worksheets contain a randomized answer list at the bottom, allowing students to self assess their understanding
◾An answer-range key, giving the numeric range all answers for a particular colour fall into. i.e. red --> [12, 16)
◾ A Teaching Tips page to help you implement this task smoothly

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! 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!

Feedback, suggestions, and frontline stories are always welcomed!

Thanks for checking this out! Enjoy the Autumn season!
