About This Lesson

Far simpler than the negative number maze; this can be used with lower ability students but still has some degree of complexity to some questions.Students should be encouraged to work out all their answers first and then to color using the key (you can check their colors first to make sure they haven't gone wrong). Common mistake - students use the key and apply it to the numbers in the image but these refer to the question numbers. This makes an image of the 4 main South Park characters (upside down to avoid any early guesses).

Directions
You do not color based on the answer of the problem but by the color that problem is assigned to. Example: if problem #1 is assigned purple based on the answer, then all the #1's should be colored purple.

On the coloring part, there are no negative integers. This could be a lot of fun if it had the negatives in there.
