Eat Your Math Homework: Hands On LearningEver 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.

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.

  1. This is quite innovative and an excellent way to motivate young people in the areas of math and food science. I would add that a side benefit would be to introduce some elements of safe food handling—hence food safety along with it to encourage them to develop the habit of food safety as they make those delicious foods. If alternative recipes could be created it would also help entrench good and nutritious food habits—win-win for the future generation of food scientists!
