Demonstrating the Importance of Math

A common argument from students is that their math lessons will never be useful once they leave school. Of course, every parent knows this isn't’ the case. If this sounds familiar, The Tutoring Center, Sandestin has a great activity to share which can help.

Kitchen Lessons

Instead of your children spending the afternoon and evening on the couch playing video games or tapping away at their mobile device screen, invite them to help you in the kitchen and use cooking as a teaching platform.
  • Search for a recipe in the Metric system and ask your children to convert it to Imperial.
  • Look for a recipe which serves too many portions and ask your student to calculate the portions for the servings you need.
  • When using packet items, have your children calculate how much will be remaining.
  • Allow your children to manage the measuring of items.
This can help your student in a number of ways:
  1. The lessons you will teach them will not only be valuable in their classroom but also their daily life.
  2. A practical lesson is better absorbed by children and can immediately show them the relevance and benefits of using math in adult life.
  3. Parents are given the opportunity to identify any learning challenges their child may be facing.
