Mom's matzo ball soup

MatzahBallSoup Passover begins this year on Wednesday evening, April 5th, 2023, with a Passover seder dinner. Passover is one of the three high holidays in the Jewish calendar and celebrates the Exodus of Jews from slavery in Egypt. Let your students review fractions in this investigation on tripling my mom's recipe and trying to use the recipe to create one humungous matzo ball. Passover always begins on the 14th day of Nissan on the Hebrew calendar but that day translates to a range of Spring days in the Gregorian calendar. For an interesting investigation of the Hebrew calendar go here.
