Colouring by Trig Ratios, Nutcracker - (24 Worksheet Mosaic)
Highly Engaging! Trig can be a tough nut to crack if you're not armed with an awesome activity...

Each worksheet represents a small section of the big picture! The end result will look spectacular hanging up in your classroom :)

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

Students use the basic trig ratios (sin, cos, tan) to solve for sides and angles, then use the answers to colour their worksheets based on the colour key. So much cooler than textbook homework!

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

INCLUDED (.docx and .pdf files in a zip folder):
--> Full class set of 24 worksheets (each worksheet is different!) that combine to create the nutcracker mosaic
-->Worksheets involve a range of right trigonometry problems that involve choosing and applying the correct primary trig ratio to solve for an unknown side or angle.
--> Every worksheet contains a randomized list of answers at the bottom, allowing for student self-assessment
--> Master Answer Key showing numeric solution for all worksheets

If you like this product, be sure the check out , 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 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!

Feedback, suggestions, and frontline stories are much appreciated!!
