My daughters and I were recently blessed to review Eat Your Math Homework from Ann McCallum Books. This was such a fun review for my daughters and even myself. I enjoyed watching them read and interact with each other to complete all the fun math activities that are included in it.
What is Eat Your Math Homework?
Each section includes fun math facts and an edible math project. The recipes include Fibonacci snack sticks based on the famous sequence of numbers, fraction chips made from cut-up tortillas, tessellating two-color brownies, milk and tangram cookies, variable pizza pi and probability trail mix. Also, each section includes a math "appeteaser." These were fun math questions that my daughters enjoyed trying to solve.
How My Daughters Used Eat Your Math Homework
We sat down and read this book together as a family. It's a fairly short book, so reading through it was quite simple. My daughters loved it and they couldn't wait to start trying out the fun kitchen activities.
When she was all done, we ate the cookies and they were delicious. My husband arrived home to find a piece for him as well and he said that he thought that the book was working out wonderful for our family. Perhaps, it's because he enjoyed the yummy treats or perhaps, it was because he knew his daughters were having fun and learning. I'll assume both.
My other two daughters favorite activity was the probability trail mix. The had a blast setting up the activity as well as learning about probability. They had fun recording the results and seeing how close they were to their predictions.
We haven't completed all of the activities, but I foresee them all done in the near future. I have a feeling this is a book that will be put to use over and over again.
