Fractions for National Cookie Month!

In honor of National Cookie month, I’m sharing a tempting way to introduce the concept ofnobake fractions to your own personal teacher’s pets. In years past I brought an electric frying pan to class on the day I began my mathematics unit on fractions. After my class and I made the following recipe of No Bake Oatmeal Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies, we sat around eating cookies and considering how in the world a bigger number could mean a smaller amount. We poured colored water from smaller one-fourth, one-third and one-half cup containers into clear glass one cup containers. Then we all had another cookie. In my experience, children’s interest in fractions increases exponentially with practical (and yummy) real world cooking experience.

 

For children with allergies, I’ve included a no bake recipe without peanuts and dairy. For all cookie lovers everywhere I’m including a no-bake cookie website. Yea!

    Fraction is already taught in elementary grades and it is also part of our everyday’s life. But sometimes we cannot escape some situations where we have to solve complicated fraction problems like adding and subtracting mixed fractions. To make sure that my solution is correct I used fraction calc as a guide so that I can avoid some mistakes. Making mistakes in real life really cost a lot and mind draining. Just like dividing the inheritance which involve a lot of fractions, we have to be sure that everything is correct to avoid further problems.
