An appropriate graduation gift for a mathematics major. . .



We had way too much fun making this clock for my brother Ben's girlfriend Stephanie. She graduated today from Georgia Tech with highest honors in the area of Applied Mathematics. We knew she'd appreciate such a fine piece of clockmanship.

We are considering marketing our creation ;). Included with each clock, which can be personalized to your own favorite mathematical equivalences of the digits 1-12, would be a tri-fold brochure on the wonders of 144, 8128, and phi (Hannah's, Ben's, and my favorite numbers, respectively). Note the prominent location of these three numbers in the clock face, and also the time suggested by the placement of the hands.

I love that! Why hasn't anyone ever done that before?? You really ought to pursue getting that marketed. All kinds of brainy people-oriented catalogs would just love that!
