Scholastic released Tuesday “Math@Work: Math Meets Culinary Arts,” the second episode in a web series for students, designed to connect classroom learning to their careers.

In the 30-minute Math@Work: Math Meets Culinary Arts webisode, The Chew’s Carla Hall and the newest winner of Bravo’s Top Chef, Nicholas Elmi, challenge three New York City high school students to create healthy dishes that can easily be served in school cafeterias across the country.

Filmed at the Institute of Culinary Education, the students solve math problems and discover how math plays a critical role in planning and cooking healthy meals.

First Lady Michelle Obama and Sam Kass, White House Chef and Executive Director of the Let’s Move! initiative, also make an appearance in the webisode with a message to students across the country about the importance of eating healthy and cooking healthy.

“As co-host on ‘The Chew’ and author of Carla’s Comfort Foods, I am committed to the idea of health and balance in everyday life,” said Carla Hall. “It brings me great pleasure to be a part of the Scholastic Math@Work web series to show students how math is a key ingredient to cooking healthy and delicious meals.”

“All kids have career ambitions. Our Math@Work web series shows students how important math is in these careers – from fashion to the culinary arts – and how what they’re learning at school is a stepping stone to their futures,” said Margery Mayer, president of Scholastic Education.

The Math@Work: Math Meets Culinary Arts webisode is available on the Scholastic Mathematics website.
