Have you ever noticed how math problems always pop up when baking and cooking? With kids in the kitchen, this is a great opportunity to practice what they're learning in school.
For example, when younger school age kids attend our classes, we may throw out a word problem such as this:
If there are nine ingredients in the recipe and eight kids in the class each get assigned an ingredient, how many leftover ingredients are there?💬
For older kids there are opportunities for practicing fractions such as this:
If the recipe calls for one and one fourth cups of buttermilk and we need to double that, how much would that be?💬
Whether at home with parents or in baking classes with Itty Bitty Bakers, math skills are needed!
Drop your kid's answers to the questions above in the comments below (right, wrong, or funny!) and we'll send you a class coupon code!🎉
