Colouring by Trigonometry, Pumpkin Pi (3 Version Bundle) 25-Sheet Math Mosaic
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!

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
Linear Systems, and 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

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

The student buy-in factor is HUGE with these worksheets

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!
