Cooking Recipes on the Road

Age Rating:

It’s time to show off your cooking talent. Help keep the family food truck running using your mathematics skills. Pick, measure and mix ingredients to cook up delicious dishes for all your customers. By following tried and true recipes, experimenting with ingredients and uncovering secret recipes, you’ll create the best food truck in town.

Take orders and follow recipes to serve your customers. Pick the right ingredients and measure the right amounts to prepare exactly what your customer craves and keep them coming back for more. On special event days, play three mini-games to help build your food truck’s success. Compete against other cooks in a food truck face-off to prepare the same dish the fastest and yummiest. If another food truck has a dish you love, use reverse-engineering to uncover the special ingredient. When there’s a food truck festival across town, race to get there early and snag a prime location – just watch out for projectile meatballs. Be sure to keep the kitchen spic and span before the health inspector arrives. Plus, earn upgrades to customise the look and feel of your food truck as you play. Children earn badges for learning achievements that unlock special items.

This game is specially designed to enable children 5-8 to enjoy the fun of cooking while exploring the naturally embedded math and science topics. Learn about decimals, percentages and fractions as you measure ingredients and follow recipes. Build an understanding of temperature and cooking chemistry, as well as weight, mass and food facts.

Temperature

  • Children  identify and read thermometers as a tool of measurement, and can learn the language of units and temperature.

Volume and Weight

  • Compare the volume of various containers, and weigh as method of measuring and attaining desired amounts.

Addition and Subtraction

  • Children learn to add and subtract quantities, sometimes with objects and sometimes with symbolic equations such as 4 + 3 = __ or 4 – 3 = __.

Multiplication

  • Children begin to understand multiplication as repeated addition, and memorise multiplication facts to allow quick solutions to complex problems.

Fractions

  • Children learn to think of parts of a whole, or parts of a set, and then learn fractional representations.

Decimals

  • Children first understand fractions as parts of a whole or parts of a set and eventually connect fractions to decimals.
