Math major here, many erasures in my day.

Staedtler Mars plastic erasers are by far the best, IME.

Yes I actually carry this with me and my mechanical pencil.

Those, or the little rectangular block ones. https://www.google.com/search?q=stae...plastic+eraser It's the eraser material that counts, not the shape, and these are the best. Other pink erasers can easily wear away the paper, especially with multiple erasures at the same spot.

Oh and I also used an eraser shield to protect my work aroung the mistake. Here are images: https://www.google.com/search?q=eras...w=1024&bih=672. They are very thin metal.
