It’s all over! The votes are in, they have been counted, and I can announce that the winner of The Big Internet Math-Off is:

**Nira Chamberlain!**

Massive congratulations to Nira, you may now refer to yourself as The World’s Most Interesting Mathematician*.

* of the 16 people I asked to take part, who were available in July, and wanted to play.

Nira’s pitch on applied mathematics won 56% of the vote in the final, with 1207 votes against 960 for Matt Parker’s pitch on naive fraction addition.

I don’t *get* applied maths – it never appealed strongly to me – so I really appreciated Nira sharing his obvious enjoyment of it. And apparently so did the voters!
