Quite often, when you cook, you need to use math. At Thanksgiving time, when there may be extra people at your table, a cook often needs to double or triple a recipe so that there will be enough to go around.


This involves multiplication, including multiplying fractions. So it gives you good math practice . . . and makes a lot of good food to enjoy!


Let's practice on this traditional Thanksgiving turkey stuffing recipe. When you're done, best of all, you get to eat the result as your daily after-school snack! You can save the rest in a dish in the refrigerator. Stuffing makes a good side dish for just about any meal, but especially at Thanksgiving time.


At left is the ingredient. Triple it by multiplying the quantity times 3, and write it in the blank at right.


At the bottom, you can find the answers, so you might want to check your work before you cook!
