Is your child struggling with math? Or maybe you just want your child to have a head start on fractions? Cooking with your child is a great way to introduce fractions in a fun and easy way. Make math fun with this activity today.

Explaining Fractions

Start out by pulling out your measuring cups and explaining to your child what the numbers on the different sized cups mean. You can even do a mini experiment by filling up the 1/4 cup with water four times and pouring it into the 1 cup.  Show your child that four 1/4 cups equal one full cup. Repeat this experiment with the 1/3 cup and 1/2 cup. Or mix and match with the 3/4 cup and 1/4 cup to fill up one full cup.

Cooking

Find an easy recipe that has measuring of different ingredients. Consider choosing a family recipe or have your child pick out a recipe. Cookies are always a good choice since they have different amounts of flour, sugar, butter, etc. Have your child help by measuring out all of the ingredients. The best part about cooking with your child is that the fun does not stop when you finish the recipe, you also get to enjoy the results. For tutoring in Lawrenceville, contact The Tutoring Center.
