Shrove Tuesday is Pancake Day throughout the world!
Here are some websites that offer pancake-themed Math lessons….
Preschool Pancake Math:
At this site you will find a suggestion for how to use pancakes to teach geometric shapes to little ones.
Find all kinds of pancake-themed activities and lessons that teach while they entertain!
Elementary Grades Pancake Math:
At the Aunt Jemima website you can scroll down to the title “Pancake Math” to find out how to use information on a pancake mix box to teach your kids about multiplication, addition, measurement, and every other principle of math all while they’re enjoying a pancake breakfast.
Practice counting, measuring, estimating, charting, averaging and more all while baking some delicious pancakes for Grandma!
Upper Elementary Grades and Beyond:
At this website you’ll see a number of “pancakes” all of different sizes, stacked on top of each other. Your job is to arrange the pancakes according to their size with the biggest at the bottom. Click a pancake and your flipper “goes under that pancake” and flips the whole stack above the flipper.
This pancake sorting problem asks how many “prefix reversals” are sufficient to sort an arbitrary stack of pancakes.
Just For Fun!
