Is baking basic chemistry? Are ingredients basic biology? And is cooking basic math? If you can't tell a tsp from a Tbsp, you're likely to get a pancake when you wanted a soufflé. Basic math skills are needed to help you properly prepare a recipe your guests will enjoy, to convert your favorite recipe’s serving size, or to determine the best value when comparison shopping at the grocery store.

Join Matt the Mathematical Cook, a fun and lively host who will multiply, divide, measure and whip up a few recipes in the process in Math in the Kitchen: Do You Measure Up?

Divided into 4 chapters for easy viewing with options to view standard or metric measurements, the program includes:

Overview – how to read a recipe
Measuring and Equivalents – shows how to measure and common equivalents
Conversions – allows students to practice increasing and decreasing recipes
Cost Comparisons – students use price and size to determine what is the best buy
