My class will be studying ratios, rates, and proportions in November and December. A common way ratios are used in real life is cooking, especially baking. In my experience, students love when class material (especially math) is used in TV/movies. I would like to do a "Cupcake Wars" style project where my students work to create a cupcake recipe and compete in a school wide cupcake wars competition using what they are learning about ratios and rates.
How are ratios used in your career?
Why are ratios so crucial to cooking and creating recipes?
Can you provide an example where NOT understanding ratios caused problems at your job?
Can you provide an example where KNOWING ratios helped you be more successful at your job?
What is your favorite thing to create/bake/cook at your job?
Have you ever had to use ratios or proportions to adjust one of your recipes to feed a lot of people?
I want students to learn how ratios and rates are used in restaurants/bakeries, or even in meals their families can cook at home. I would love for a chef or baker to talk to my students and connect how ratios are used in the cooking (and eating). I would also like students to understand that ratios/proportions are crucial for making recipes for small or large groups of people.
Leaving honest feedback and rating gives members a good idea of what to expect when dealing with other members. Leaving Feedback is also a way to express your appreciation for a session well done.
We are requesting permission to record, edit and make available each virtual interaction because teachers like to review the session with students for better understanding of material, assign it to students for homework in a blended learning model or just share it with other classrooms that cannot attend a live session. As a professional your volunteering hours go further when a recording is made available for reuse in education.
