Fun with Math – Cooking

Text Version

Baking!

-Fractions and proportions are a big part of baking!  Make a cake and have your child help with the measuring.  Don’t like cakes?  Try a pie instead!

Portion Size

-Have a killer family recipe for omelets or pasta?  Try and figure out how the recipe would change if you wanted double or half portions!

Measurement Conversion

-How many tablespoons make a cup?  How many teaspoons make a tablespoon?  You can convert the measurements used for a particular recipe into a different measurement for some mathematical fun

Following directions is also a very useful skill needed in cooking and school!
