* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lGgx4eRCthI#t=41m13s One segment]][[note]]It's at 43:28 in the ''AMV Hell 4''[[/note]] for FanFic/AMVHell focused on a slow crawl across a blackboard covered with math equations in ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion''. Halfway through the piece, we hear the Kevin Spacey in ''SupermanReturns'' "WRONG!", and as the music is swapped out for KingMissile's "Equivalencies", all the errors on the board are pointed out with red marker. Humorously, the segment also points out that although one solution does several things wrong, it ends up at the right answer anyway.

* Inverted by ''WesternAnimation/RickAndMorty'', where every time we see Morty's math problems (Morty is a high schooler), they appear to be basic single-digit addition and subtraction problems.

Also related to relativity[[note]]but this time general relativity instead of special relativity[[/note]], the Einstein field equations (R[[subscript:ab]] - (1/2)g[[subscript:ab]]R = (8πG/c[--[[superscript:4]]--])T[[subscript:ab]]) are rising in prominence as a decorative formula, as E=mc[--[[superscript:2]]--] has started to become a cliché. Loosely, the terms of the left describe the curvature of space-time (which is perceived as gravity) while the terms on the right refer to the distribution of matter. [[note: Solving these equations even for the simplest cases is far beyond almost ''anybody'''s abilities (solving them for our own spacetime has not yet been achieved in the entire century they've been known for, and isn't likely to happen any time soon). It requires graduate education in mathematics just to understand them; writing them out in any lower educational institution would be wholly pointless.]]

* One strip of the newspaper comic ''{{Foxtrot}}'' has InsufferableGenius Jason Fox, a ten-year-old, solving a simple division problem on his class chalkboard. He rewrites the equation in about a dozen different ways, many of which would require knowledge of trigonometry or calculus to understand. Given that the cartoonist Bill Amend majored in physics in college, all of them are correct.

[[folder:Comic Strips]] * Parodied in a ''ComicStrip/CalvinAndHobbes'' strip. Calvin nearly panics when asked to solve an arithmetic problem at the chalkboard. But then he calms down and deliberately stalls by doodling random symbols on the board until the bell rings. [[/folder]]

* Music/WeirdAlYankovic's video "White and Nerdy". Just to show how smart Alfred is. Ironically, it contains an error.

* In ''RobotChicken'', they parody this trope in a sketch. Where two scientists are laughing their heads off to a bizarre problem on the board, only for one of them to stop, erase a symbol, add another, and then both burst out laughing again.
