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.
