Cooking It Up with Mathematics

My students need some small kitchen appliances such as a hand mixer, programmable breadmaker, and an ice cream maker to use for our cooking lessons.

My Students

We need to cook! Imagine a kitchen that we use for our cooking lessons with very limited tools, utensils, and appliances. We need a few small kitchen appliances.

I teach high school special education students in a public school.

They are in a self-contained class, half of them have Autism, one has Down's syndrome, and the rest have moderate intellectual disabilities. They are the kind of students, who, despite of their disabilities are very eager to learn.

My Project

Cooking lessons is a part of our functional curriculum. We teach this life skill to help our students be more independent once they are on their own. I have requested a hand mixer, programmable breadmaker, and an ice cream maker to use for our cooking lessons. These small kitchen appliances will be a part of our kitchen inside our classroom. We will at the same time incorporate some math lessons in our cooking, especially in baking and in making desserts. By measuring the different ingredients in our recipes, students can learn about fractions, addition, subtraction, and conversion.

My students will learn and enjoy math lessons while cooking.

Most students, especially the kind of students I have, have difficulties in grasping mathematical concepts. If we use math in the kitchen in a more visual way, we are changing math from an abstract concept to a more concrete concept.
