Cake Sale Maths

22nd April 2016

Our Year 4 class used their Maths lesson yesterday to bake some lovely cakes for Children in Need while learning how to make measurement conversions.  They were given a recipe in kilograms, then they had to convert it into grams and then scale it up times 3 before baking their cakes.  This type of lesson is exciting and provides children with a real life problem to solve using their mathematical skills.  The cakes turned out beautifully so those measurements must have been just right!
