What was the first (known) maths mistake?


From Standup Mathematician.

Thanks to Waterstones for choosing Humble Pi as a ‘top 100’ paperback of the year.

Signed copies are available at Maths Gear. It’s cheaper at Waterstones, but not signed. You choose!

Thanks to Robert Englund and the Free University of Berlin for producing Archaic Bookkeeping. What a niche but amazing book. But be warned: copies are not cheap.

Hey look, Kushim has their own wikipedia page!

– None spotted yet. Let me know if you locate any mistakes.

Thanks to Penguin Random House for supporting this video.

As always: thanks to Jane Street who support my channel. They’re amazing.

And thanks to all my Patreon legends. You allow me to take risks and make different videos like this. Will the internet like an all-animated Stand-up Maths video? We’ll find out!

Animation by William Marler
Music and sound by Howard Carter (including the SUM-erian theme remix)
Written and narrated by Matt Parker
Beer by Kushim and Nisa
