In the Math 6 classroom, the approach is to make math meaningful, applicable and exploratory. One of the easiest ways to enhance understanding is through multi-sensory learning engagements; learning that goes beyond the traditional pen and paper method. And what is one of the most memorable sensory experiences? To explore through the sense of taste!
During the “Fractions” unit, students explore how mathematics is applied to the daily practice of cooking and baking. The final summative task is to modify a customized Chex Mix recipe suitable for a class (20 servings) and for an individual (a single serving).
