Mathematical Monday: Clocks

Clocks, not the Coldplay song (although I insist that band has 1 song with 4 titles), are inherently mathematical because they are an even division of time. However, there are those out there who can make them even more geeky and here are a few.

Because analog clocks aren't hard enough to use!

Just in case you think it’s too easy to read an analog clock, here’s one that makes you calculate each number in the process! 

Add another level of geekiness by getting a pocketwatch version!

Now you can look awesome and practice math skills at the same time!


Some of these digits are not quite exact, but infinitely close is good enough for time, right!

More interested in Geometry or Trigonometry?

You'll need a slide rule to tell timeYou might need a SOHCAHTOA crash course for this one! It’s classy though.

And finally a clock for the OCD Math Geek among us (you know, like me!)

I think Data built this clock in the time loopEverything including the design in the middle is all about the 9’s. I kind of want this one.

Okay, there’s your selection of ways to tell time the Geeky Math Way! All normal clocks should be boring now. You’re welcome!

    I like the 9 one too. not to mention that I can do the math on that one.
