16-year-old Gracie Cunningham went viral on Twitter for posting a TikTok talking about how math isn’t real, and she received a lot of backlash from folks on the internet.
Mathematician Eugenia Cheng, however, came to the teens defense because she recognized that Gracie was asking questions “like a mathematician would.”
