Reviews - What do customers think about The Math Chef: Over 60 Math Activities and Recipes for Kids?
Interesting Apr 17, 2010
This is a little above my 9 year old but has some good exercises. I think it should indicate the level not just "for kids". Also it sort of jumps around with the activities, It would be easier to use if it was arranged to concentrate of one facet at a time before moving to a different topic. Sort of seesaws. All in all a good math tool and I'm glad to have it even though it takes a little more work on my part to plan the lessons.
good xmas present Dec 28, 2009
My nephew wasn't thrilled when he opened this at Christmas, but he has read the whole thing and planned meals to cook already, so it's quite successful.
Great and fun way to introduce math topics Sep 6, 2008
I am so excited to use this book with my son. I home school my children and this book presents math topics such as measurements, radius, division, fractions and many others in a practical way. Children see math used in everyday life, in the kitchen! It isn't the only method we will use to teach these topics, but it certainly will add to the enjoyment of learning them!
Average Jul 7, 2008
I teach fourth and fifth grades, and I bought this book thinking that it would offer fun and different ways to incorporate math into everyday life activities like cooking and eating. I found it to be out of date, average at best and did not really require the use of very much math. It is really more of a children's cookbook than a math activity book. I was disappointed.
