        Real-Life Math | Restaurant Manager

        Restaurant manager Tad Peelen explains how he uses math in his work in this video from KAET. In the accompanying classroom activity, students complete an activity involving one aspect of math that Mr. Peleen mentions: determining quantities of food needed to cater an event, and in the process, converting among measurement units. To get the most from the lesson, students should be comfortable multiplying fractions by whole numbers. They should also be familiar with customary units for weight (oz., lbs.) and capacity (cups, gallons).

        Special thanks to Tad Peelen of Joe's Real BBQ in Gilbert, AZ.
