Description

Chefsville continues its connecting students for success with its Family Engagement Nights. This program is meant to improve student outcomes and school performance from preschool to high school. Math Nights offer a way to share information, provide additional core academic activities and resources that will allow an increase in student achievement while highlighting what students are doing in the classroom. Parents seek opportunities for supporting students at home resulting in student motivation and setting them up for long-term educational success. Chefsville is offering Math Nights to increase awareness of what students need to be successful by having activities that connect cooking with math. Focus is on math objectives using measurements, operations, reasoning, comparison/contrast, sequencing, geometry, fractions, processes, relationships, patterns, probability and other mathematical tools. Students will use logical reasoning, real objects, manipulative, and technology to make sense of their world. Lively culinary demonstrations (some hands-on) are used to engage students imaginations and creativity.

  • help measure ingredients to complete a recipe
  • explore the use of different measuring devices
  • work with different units of measure, fractions, weight versus volume, food costs and play at menu pricing
