Chefs in Great Britain have used “maths” to determine the best way to cook roasted potatoes. See the magic formula here (courtesy of the Sun).
Watch the video and read the accompanying article. Write a paragraph that explains the difference between the “traditional” way of making roasted potatoes and the “new, mathematical” way. What changes were made and what is the advantage? How did chefs determine that the new way was in fact “better”?
In a second paragraph, describe another food that you think might be improved using mathematics to aid in the preparation. Describe a hypothesis you might have about how that food might be improved using mathematics and why you think it would be an improvement. Give a diagram if it helps your explanation.
