Math Math Math Why do we study math?

First of all, it’s all around us! First of all, it’s all around us!

Secondly, here are a few examples Can you think of a few more?

Where is math in cooking? Measuring Spoons Measuring Cup Mixing Bowls Pots & Pans

Simple Yellow Cake Ingredients: 2 1/3 Cups All-purpose Flour 1 Tablespoon Baking Powder 3/4 Teaspoon Salt 1 1/2 Cups White Sugar 1/2 Cup Shortening 2 Eggs 1 Cup Milk 1 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract DIRECTIONS: Sift together flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar. Cut in shortening until fine crumbs are formed. Add eggs, milk, and vanilla. Beat at low speed for 1 minute, then high for 2 minutes, scraping the bowl frequently. Pour batter into greased and floured 9x13 inch pan. Bake in preheated 350 degree F oven (175 degrees C) for 25 to 30 minute If we needed to make enough cakes to feed 200 people, how much of each ingredient would we need, if we only made whole cakes and we cut out 24 pieces from each pan ?

200 divided by 24 = 8+ or 9 cakes Ingredients: 1 cake 2 1/3 cups all-purpose flour 1 tablespoon baking powder 3/4 teaspoon salt 1 1/2 cups white sugar 1/2 cup shortening 2 eggs 1 cup milk 1 teaspoon vanilla extract Ingredients: 9 cakes 21 cups 9 tablespoons 6 3/4 teaspoons 1 1/2 cups 4 1/2 cups 18 eggs (approx.6 cups) 9 cups = 2 quarts & 1 cup 9 teaspoons = 3 tablespoons

How big of a mixing bowl would we need for all the ingredients?

Approx. 45 cups or 10+ Quarts Many mixers, like this one, only hold 5 quarts, so we may need to mix a batch 2-3 times.

So now do you see why we might want to study math? Let’s get into your study groups and “brainstorm” some ideas for your own slide show? We will pass out papers for your slides. Friday, after lunch break, we will try to input a slide or two.
