A mathematical formula reveals how to make the perfect mince pie. Keen cook and Professor of Pure Mathematics Dr Eugenia Cheng has created a mathematical equation to bake one of Britain’s most loved festive treats. Eager to prove to people that maths can be fun, Dr Cheng explains maths using everyday cooking. Previously Senior Lecturer at the University of Sheffield, the doctor now teaches at the School of Art Institute of Chicago and is known for her math skills in the kitchen. Dr Cheng investigates the mathematical balance between the mince and the pastry.

Samsung is the principal sponsor of the soon to be launched Mathematics: The Winton Gallery at the Science Museum. Designed by the world-renowned Zaha Hadid Architects, this outstanding new gallery tells the story of how mathematics has shaped our world. To celebrate this partnership, Samsung challenged Professor of Pure Mathematics Dr Eugenia Cheng to create a mathematically perfect mince pie, just in time for Christmas.
