My favorite new book for the math classroom is *Eat Your Math Homework Recipes for Hungry Minds* by Ann McCallum. Students won’t report to class claiming their dog ate their homework with activities such as the ones McCallum has cooked up. These tasty recipes can be followed at home or at school for a tasty snack of milk and math.

The recipes begin with “Fibonacci Snack Sticks” where children learn about patterns and sequences with a side of math history as they skewer a variety of ingredients to create edible patterns. Other recipes including “Fraction Chips,” “Tessellating Two-Color Brownies,” and Probability Trail Mix” will have students coming back for seconds.

**Teaching Tip**

Invite parents to join the class and assist small groups of children as they cook up some math.

UPDATE

Since posting this entry the author has developed a Web site and educator’s guide to support the book. You will find it atÂ http://www.eatyourmathhomework.com/
