Looking for the perfect holiday gift for a math enthusiast? Check out our recommendations below!
If there’s one thing we at Reasoning Mind know, it’s that shopping for a math lover can be hard. There are plenty of great gifts, but they aren’t always front-and-center in store display windows. That’s why Reasoning Mind has assembled a list of a few of our favorite gift ideas; they’re all under $30 and guaranteed to make any math enthusiast smile.
1. The Joy of x: A Guided Tour of Math, from One to Infinity, by Steven Strogatz
With 4.5 stars and over 200 reviews, this book expands on a host of mathematical concepts in a fun, applicable way. According to Booklist, “even math phobes will find themselves swept up in the fun.”
2. Pi Pie Pan
Here’s a piece of kitchenware that’ll come in extremely handy come March 14, 2017. But by all means, give it to someone early and encourage them to use it to make a tasty holiday dessert before the year’s end!
3. Math Classroom Sign
Know a math teacher with hardline stances on things like showing your work, never giving up, and believing everyone can succeed in mathematics? Give them a sign that communicates their conviction in those beliefs.
4. Trigonometry Mug
Math puns abound in the Reasoning Mind office, and for all we know our employees are about to make this mug completely sold out. But if there are any left, you should get one for any math humorists in your life.
5. My Best Mathematical and Logic Puzzles, by Martin Gardner
6. Primes Wall Clock
Those are all the gifts we had time to find, but we welcome everyone to share their ideas in the comments!
