Math and Science Gumbo

Weights, measures, cooking times and temps, physical and chemical changes -- you name it and the Kitchen Mathematician will beat, mix, blanche, toast, boil and fricassee food to explore the math and science that goes into cooking.

Math and Science Gumbo takes the unique approach of using food and cooking to teach many principles of math and science. The series focuses on math concepts like unit pricing, fractions, estimation, units of measurement, area and so on. On the science side, the series looks at the concepts of physical and chemical change, preservation, refrigeration, enzymes, microorganisms and gas laws. Math and Science Gumbo is tied to Ohio's Academic Content Standards.
