How does it work?

Every Doodle Math activity is a print-and-go time-saver:

  1. Print out the worksheet. It has a series of math problems to solve, and space for students to show their work.

  2. Students solve the problems. Each answer unlocks a pattern, which students can doodle onto a template image.

  3. Turn math into a masterpiece. The completed image will match the answer key once all of their answers are correct – and it's easy to spot-check from a distance.

The completed image will look best when students use markers in their choice of colors but can be completed with pencil or pen in a pinch!
