Eat Your Math – Tangram Fun and More!

Ever thought about eating a Fibonacci snack? Or a tessellating brownie? Perhaps a tangram cookie?

I found these delectable math-related treats in the book Eat Your Math Homework: Recipes for Hungry Minds by Ann McCallum and illustrated by Leeza Hernandez, a book for chefs and young mathematicians.

We made the yummiest tangrams! First, we made the cookie batter.

After mixing and patting it into a square pan, we marked the traced tangram shape with a knife.

Then we removed the wax paper and cut the knife all the way through.

Next we baked it.

Then we played with our food.

And ate our math homework!

The sugary cookies as tangrams made a big impression on the girls. They loved the flavor and are excited to make more. Every day.

Me, I’m looking forward to trying the fraction chips and the Pizza Pi.

Go to Eat Your Math Homework’s website for more information about the book.
