Smile Stand-Up Math{s}

Hi again all,
Matt Parker has a YouTube channel called standupmaths.
It is entertaining to me.
Do a search for standupmaths if you are interested.
In America we say 'math'. In parts of Great Britan they say
the plural, that is 'maths'.
Here is the internet link to Mr. Parker's page.
Food for thought. And hopefully you will like the video.

Have a nice day.

"maths" is not a plural in the UK, any more than is "mathematics" anywhere. We say "Maths is hard" equivalently to "Mathematics is hard".

The difference is historical. Originally the singular was "mathematic", abbreviated to "math" and "mathematics" and "maths" were indeed their plurals. That has not been the case in English for a very long time. The full singular disappeared from both languages and the original abbreviation from UK English, leaving three variants all of which are singular.
