Farm to Table

The Farm to Table Experience is works great for tweens and teens ages 11 to 16. If you are a Homeschool group and would like to integrate this experience into your curriculum during the school year, contact me. 

 

Description

When it comes to farming and cooking, math is everywhere! Cooks use ratios to modify recipes and farmers are constantly calculating how much area they need for their crops or animals. Ever need to double or triple a recipe? Or wonder how large of a coop you need? 

 

During our two-week FARM TO TABLE experience, teens and tweens will apply real world math to everything from running a farm to running a restaurant. Through cooking, nutritional analysis, unit pricing, farming and other hands-on activities, teens and tweens will learn about the math behind running a farm and creating a restaurant. During the second week, participants host a restaurant night for their friends and family. Following the event, we will calculate profit and loss and partake in an ice-cream making challenge! 

 

Mathematical concepts applied include: unit pricing, measurement, ratio, fractions, conversions, reading tables, natural logarithms (teens), scatter graphs and best line of fit (teens), making change, calculating profit & loss, area, volume and more!

A Choice Experience
Farm to Table is also available as a Choice Experience. Email for details.
