As a student, I remember being able to connect math to the real world because I took Home Economics. In Home Economics, we baked cakes, cookies, rice crispy treats, and pies. In order to prepare the baked goods with accuracy we had to measure out ingredients according to the number of people we served. For example, if a Carrot Cake recipe called for the following ingredients and served 18 but we need to serve a class of 24 we would have to use a little bit of math to adjust the ingredients and not take away from the taste and consistency of the cake itself. We no longer have Home Economics in our school and I find that many of my students struggle with measurement. Parents, if you have time to bake with your kids it will help tremendously with connecting fractions to the real world. My students have a hard time with fractions and it may be because home economics was removed from our school and they probably don't spend anytime in the kitchen.
Todays kitchens are more than just places to prepare meals. In addition to its primary food function, this room ranks as the heart of the home and center of family activity. Families today truly live in the kitchen. Kids study there; parents pay the bills and write checks there; everyone reads the morning paper in the kitchen; families eat their meals there.
Cabinets can be replaced or updated to better fit the cottage style during a kitchen renovation. Often cottage style homes have glass front cabinets that reveal dishes or other contents, which become a part of the room's aesthetic. Cabinets may be replaced with antique inspired glass front cabinets, or the doors of existing cabinets may be modified to accommodate glass inserts for a cottage feel. Alternatively, cabinet doors can be updated with bead board fronts to achieve the cottage style on existing cabinet doors.
