D'oh! I've even seen that effect before! I can't believe I didn't think of that. Thanks Akira!
Are there any other mathematics effects out there?

Add a number would go down well. There's several alternatives but here's Banachek's. Run a search for the rest.

My favourite though is Brown's.

Just good az. But I'd run with Banachek's.

There's an effect I use to do where you cause your entire audience to think of the same number (Through a series of mathematical steps). It's simple and easy, so likely not that good of an effect *Shrugs*
