* ''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.

* Played with in a ''Manga/SgtFrog'' episode where the platoon disguise themselves are children at the Fuyuki siblings' school and Giroro is given a problem in the form of a chalkboard full of incomprehensible fomulae. He stares at it all days and only hours after class had conclude does he notices a little "x 0" in the corner which apparently applied to ''everything'', making the answer simply zero.

* One scene in ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'' has some of this panned through before we see the characters in school. It makes effort to show more than just disjointed numbers, but, as an FanFic/AMVHell segment showed, it got several equations horribly wrong.

Humorously, the segment also points out that although one solution does several things wrong, it ends up at the right answer anyway.

Let's not forget about E=mc[--[[superscript:2]]--], the famous equation which has been degraded into nothing but a complex-looking decoration in everything from kids' cartoons to science shows. (E=mc[--[[superscript:2]]--] is actually UsefulNotes/AlbertEinstein's formula for [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mass-energy_equivalence mass-energy equivalence]]; far more people have heard of it than [[YouKeepUsingThatWord have any idea of what it actually means]]). Especially comical if it's pronounced [[FunetikAksent "eeyemseetwo"]] by people who don't realize the two represents a square.

* ''{{Fillmore}}'' has an episode set around a maths test. When the teacher gives her class an assignment, it reads: [=2+x=5, x-y= 16, -2x-y=-14, 2x+4y=12, -2x+ 5y=5=]. She asks them to solve both x and y, and tells them to spend the rest of the lesson doing so. This amount of time would make sense, as it's actually impossible--the value of x and y changes in those equations from one example to the next.

** And what is worse, the moral of the story is that "the value of x remains constant". Arghh!
