What's Cooking? Heat

Which is better for baking potatoes: the heat conduction of an oven or the electromagnetic radiation of a microwave? Chef Jamika tries both, and explains the physical science occurring along the way. She also emphasizes the fractional portions that she cuts the pepper into for the potato filling. So, while this is a like a cooking show, science and math topics are addressed! It would probably be most useful in your middle school physical science class when teaching about forms of energy.
