Tell The Time, Learn Trigonometry, Get a Headache With This Wall Clock
June 5th, 2011
We’ve seen a lot of functional, quirky wall clocks lately around the block. There was the minimalistic Icon Clock for people who wanted their timepieces to be neat and simple, the quirky Vinyl Numbers Clock for music lovers, and the Eclipsion Wall Clock for people who wanted to give themselves a hard time (pun intended) while trying to read the time off of it.
And then there’s the Unit Circle Radian Wall Clock that wants to teach you (or your kids) the basics of trigonometry.
Trigonometry was a subject that always intimidated me when I was still in high school. But when I encountered calculus and differential equations in college, well, let’s just say I wanted to go back to the days when trigonometry was my biggest problem.
If you’ve got some kids trying to learn the basics of this specific branch in mathematics, you’ll find that this wall clock might be of assistance, because printed on its face is the unit circle which can help your kid memorize or at least familiarize with the values. You know, just in case they aren’t allowed to bring in a scientific calculator during their tests or finals.
The Unit Circle Radian Wall Clock is available from Amazon for $17.99 (USD).
