Next week schools across Scotland will be joining Bake Off 2020 winner Peter Sawkings to look at the maths in baking. You can share your bakes with a math twist on Twitter with #MathsBakes… Will you only use four sided shapes? Make a selection of cakes each double in size? Can you recreate the Maths Week Scotland logo?
