#ShowYourWorking Campaign 2022

In the run up to and during Maths Week Scotland 2022, we’re asking people from all industries to help show that maths is everywhere and highlight the importance of maths in all careers - from athletes to artists, and from horticulturists to hairdressers.

How to get involved

  1. Think about examples of how maths is used in your industry. Bonus points for examples that will be a surprise to others!

  2. Tweet your examples during Maths Week Scotland between 26 September and 2 October. Video? Photo? Animation? You decide! Don’t forget to use #MathsWeekScot AND #ShowYourWorking.

    We’ll be highlighting our favourite examples throughout the week. The less obvious the better!

  3. Nominate a friend to do the same and help make sure all industries are represented as part of Maths Week Scotland 2022.

We’re looking forward to seeing how you use maths in your job all throughout #MathsWeekScot and showing young people how the skills they are learning now will be put into practice in the future.

Schools - Why not share a particularly interesting example you’ve come across as part of your Maths Week Scotland activities? And follow #ShowYourWorking on Twitter for examples to inspire your class with.

Here are some examples from previous years to get you started:
