Kitchen Math

Quesadilla… What’s missing?
  • Today’s kitchen math discussion: “What do you notice?”
  • Next Inquiry: “What don’t you know?”
  • Investigation: *materials: paper/pencils/colored pencils/crayons or family learning journals (back of journal) Remind them to turn to the next available page and date it. Ask them to write the name for today’s kitchen math.
  • Inquire: “How would you discover this quesadilla’s fraction?”  “What if you ate 3 more pieces, what would the fraction be?”   “What if there was 13 guests for snack time?” *Let them have 5-6 minutes to draw their thoughts (without talking). When they are finished, have them share how they came to their conclusions.
  • Kitchen Lab: Discuss: “What type of a fraction “snack” should we make to discover if our reasoning is accurate? *Invite them to investigate their solutions: “Let’s investigate!”
Family Learning Journals: One for each family member.
