When we began thinking about the importance of integrating kitchen and garden learning into the academic classroom, we did not have a mathematics book in mind. Soon, however, teachers at the Edible Schoolyard began developing their own strategies for engaging students with mathematics. Making Mathematics Delicious is one product of the collective wisdom we have developed.

This book differs from many supplementary curriculum materials is its alignment with California mathematics standards for middle school.This table lists the mathematics content standards that inform our lessons.

Making Mathematics Delicious was published in 2008.
