"As co-host on 'The Chew' and author of Carla's Comfort Foods, I am committed
to the idea of health and balance in everyday life," said Carla Hall. "It
brings me great pleasure to be a part of the Scholastic Math@Work web series
to show students how math is a key ingredient to cooking healthy and delicious
meals."

"I apply mathematical skills every single day when I am in the kitchen,
whether I am converting recipes or running a business," said Nicholas Elmi. 

From the creators of MATH 180™, Scholastic's revolutionary intervention
program designed to build mathematical understanding and confidence for
success with algebra, Math@Work aims to show students in grades 5 and up why
math is important beyond the classroom and essential for 21^st century
careers. Each Math@Work webisode is paired with lessons that will facilitate
mathematical discussions and problem solving.

"All kids have career ambitions. Our Math@Work web series shows students how
important math is in these careers – from fashion to the culinary arts – and
how what they're learning at school is a stepping stone to their futures,"
said Margery Mayer, President of Scholastic Education.

In the premiere webisode released November 14, 2013, "Math@Work: Math Meets
Fashion," Project Runway's Tim Gunn took three students on a tour of legendary
designer Diane von Furstenberg's New York City studio to learn about the
mathematical thinking and problem-solving required in fashion design.
