* There is a "joke proof" that has [[TheOldestOnesInTheBook been around for decades]] that attempts to use simple algebra to prove "[[http://www.quickanddirtytips.com/education/math/how-to-prove-that-1-2 if a=b then 1=2]]". The problem with the proof is that, at one point, both sides of the equation are divided by (a-b); since this is zero, this can be used as an example proof of why you can't DivideByZero. TheOtherWiki has a page full of similar [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mathematical_fallacy spurious proofs]].

The presence of such scrawlings on a card also [[spoiler: proves he is its owner when it's tossed into the ocean in a [[CrazyPrepared failed]] attempt to sabotage him]].

* ''WesternAnimation/TheAdventuresOfJimmyNeutronBoyGenius'': The chalkboard in the classroom usually has an equation for the fiction "Fritz Shoenig Theory," which consists of a summation formula and algebraic forms that would be unlikely to be recognized in a 5th grade classroom.

* ''WesternAnimation/{{Kaeloo}}'': For explaining just about anything, the characters will pull out a board full of complex mathematical equations... even if whatever they're saying has ''nothing to do with math''.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Manga/AssassinationClassroom'' surprisingly subverts this. Whenever the students have to ''fight a monster'' during their exams, they solve it in the correct way, including the language exams in japanese and english. Considering that the exams get insanely difficult during the end, it almost borders on a GeniusBonus to even even ''know'' that all answers are correct.

* A rather infamous example-turned-[[MemeticMutation meme]] comes from a particular scene in ''Anime/FutariWaPrettyCure''. The original scene is actually intentional, intended to give [[TheSmartGuy Honoka]] an opportunity to show off how smart she is by pointing out the error, but it fails to do anything but make the teacher look stupid.
