One good mathematical trivia is when the numbers 0 to 1,000 are spelled out, the letter “a” can be found in only one number, “one thousand.” Another fun trivia involving numbers is 111,111,111 x 111,111,111 = 12,345,678,987,654,321.

Full Answer

Numerical trivia has long been used to make math more fun to students and remove the negative stigma surrounding the subject. Many educators, including those who teach and love math, have voiced that giving students too much math too early in their studies can become overwhelming. This can result in poor performance in class, and thus students begin to dread the subject altogether. Teaching math when students are not ready is counterproductive, as it only leads to remedial classes, which results in more hours spent teaching them something that they would have easily understood if taught at the right time.
