NEW YORK, April 29, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Scholastic [NASDAQ: SCHL] at 1 p.m. today released " Math@Work™: Math Meets Culinary Arts," the second episode in a web series for students, designed to connect classroom learning to exciting careers that students aspire to. In the 30-minute Math@Work: Math Meets Culinary Arts webisode, The Chew's Carla Hall and the newest winner of Bravo's Top Chef, Nicholas Elmi, challenge three New York City high school students to create healthy dishes that can easily be served in school cafeterias across the country.

First Lady Michelle Obama and Sam Kass, White House Chef and Executive Director of the Let's Move! initiative, also make an appearance in the webisode with a message to students across the country about the importance of eating healthy and cooking healthy.

The Math@Work: Math Meets Culinary Arts webisode is available on the Scholastic Mathematics website at www.scholastic.com/mathematics.

"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.
