Jodie Berman, a high school math teacher in Chicago, loves mathematics and loves to cook. We've created an activity based on her Monster Cake (composed of everything that Cookie Monster loves) from her blog Binomial Baker. Students find the surface area covered by M&Ms to approximate how many M&Ms she needs to finish her cake.
When Brian tried to make the cake, he mistakenly added too much peanut butter. Now all the ingredients will have to be increased by what percent? Do the math!
