Mathematics in the Kitchen
Parents and mathematics in the kitchen class
MAKING PIZZAS…...We made Pizza in the kitchen and the students not only got a yummy lunch but also a lesson in fractions!
They measured the dough in grams and the water in millilitres.
They set the temperature of the oven and estimated the time of cooking.
Students cut the pizza into pieces and worked out what fraction of the pizza they ate!
Reading the recipe and ingredients and following the cooking instructions also improves their vocabulary.
