The Glossary of Mathematical Mistakes
Each month, the Glossary of Mathematical Mistakes examines a common fallacy that is frequently made by the media, politicians, and "many non-math people." The site has won awards from Scientific American, Britannica.com, and several others. Besides the monthly addition, there is an archive that includes mistakes that date back one year, plus many more that are just too classic to remove. Readers have the opportunity to email suggestions for mistakes that they would like people to know about. Ano
