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.

## Eat Your Math Homework

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.

This would be a sure winner here where we love to bake. And what kid wouldn’t love to be encouraged to play with their food (and slip in a math lesson at the same time)?

Lori says

Looks like so much fun while learning and especially getting to eat the end product.

PragmaticMom says

What a great way to make math fun! I can see this would be great fun for fractions too! Did it taste good too? It looks delicious!

Gwyn says

Oh, I love this! I work at the public library and just sent the link via email to get it ordered. Might have to buy a copy myself. Thank you for finding this gem!

What ages is this book appropriate for? Would a Kindergartener get it, or is it for older kids?

Melissa Taylor says

yes – especially the patterns or fraction chips – great exposure! And the kindergartener could help measure ingredients and stir . . .
