Homeschool Math in the Kitchen

Cooking and baking in the kitchen is the perfect place to incorporate homeschool math.

Basic Counting

Fractions Made Simple

Measuring spoons and measuring cups. All of which are pieces of whole, a whole cup or a 1/3 of a cup.

Reduce or Double Batch

Get them to make a double batch of a favorite muffin recipe. This is great practice for addition, fractions, and multiplication.

There are some recipes that use weight instead of volume. Or give both. This is a great time to measure and weigh ingredients. How much does one cup of flour weigh?

Grocery Budget

Go a step farther and add another life skill, grocery budgeting.
