WALT: Use maths skills in a real life context
This week we have looked at measuring mass in grams and kilograms. Today we are going to apply our knowledge to help us follow a recipe and make something delicious.
Four ways we use maths when cooking and baking:
1. Keeping track of time
You want your culinary masterpiece to be cooked perfectly!
2. Measuring ingredients
It’s important that you follow the recipe and measure your ingredients accurately so that your sweet or savoury treat turns out just right.
3. Calculating portion sizes
Perhaps you have to halve or double your recipe in order to make the right amount.
4. Setting the correct temperature
You don’t want anything to burn or be undercooked.
