Kitchen Math

What do you notice?
  • Today’s kitchen math discussion: Apple Crisp Recipe “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 prepare this recipe?”  “What is needed?”   “What if there wasn’t enough sugar or flour?” *Let them have 5-6 minutes to draft their thoughts (without talking). When they are finished, have them share how they came to their conclusions.
  • Kitchen Lab: Discuss: “If we want to try this recipe, what would be our steps in the process?” Ask someone to read the Apple Crisp recipe while someone else is drafting it in their journal. Next: Guide them in locating the ingredients needed. Ask someone to draft the grocery list (discuss the grocery list examples from the slide above).
  • Finally: “What should we do to check if our reasoning is accurate?” *Invite them to investigate their solutions: “Let’s investigate!”
