Appetizing Adventures in Math Investigations
Problem solving with pasta, exploring possibilities with popcorn, and other delicious math lessons require students to use their noodles as they discover kernels of mathematical truths. This book includes an Appetizer section that dishes out the upcoming math concept; a Main Dish section with lesson prepartion, management tips, reporoducibe activities, recording sheets, and a math journal; a Dessert section that tops off the main lesson with literature links; and more.Here's a book that combines students' love for food with appetizing math activities.
The Appetizer section whets students' appetite and explains the upcoming math concept.
The Main Dish is the independent investigation activity (the main lesson). This section outlines lesson preparation and management tips. It also features reproducible activities and recording sheets. A math journal completes the Main Dish – allowing students to reflect on and digest the mathematical concept and the food.The Side Dish is an extension or variation of the Main Dish. "Serve" these activities a la carte, or combine them with the Main Dish.
Dessert tops off the main lesson with literature links, more fun food ideas, and ways to strengthen the home-school connection.
