    Comments about MATH GLASSES - SET OF 4:

    My husband is the type of guy that brings math books to the beach. It was important that the equations be real and accurate. He thought the glasses were well made, perfect size, and clever. They represent my math geek, scotch loving husband very well. They are also a good "ice breaker" for new guests.

      My husband received these for his birthday several years ago from my sister and they were perfect for him since he has a PhD in Mathematics. He LOVES them and so I bought him a set for our second home. He was so excited to see them when he opened the box. His favorite and "go to" whiskey glass is the one with the "Golden Ratio".

        Gave this as a gift to a friend (who is a math teacher), and he loved them! He thought it was very cool that he could now drink or measure in these non-standard measures. Only minor complaint is that we received 2 "v2" glasses and no "Phi" glass (which he said was his favorite of the four pictured on the box).

            I loved these glasses. But after a year, the design wore off every glass. It says dishwasher safe, but clearly they are not. They are not inexpensive. I expected them to last.

            Our product development team is experimenting with these Mathematical Measuring Glasses! Do you love the design or should they spend more time in the lab? Take a look at the product story and the alternate image, then let us know whether you prefer the two sided glass or the glass with the front image only, and whether you'd call these "Mathematical Measuring Glasses" or "Constant Pour Glasses."

            Cassie, UncommonGoods Community Moderator

            Or if you have another great suggestion for a name for this product!

            Two sides, as they are v. Appealing. Like Mathematical Measuring Glasses /Or Glasses by Numbers.

            I like them two sided but I didn't see them as measureing glasses but drink glasses like tumblers.

            Cassie, UncommonGoods Community Moderator

            Thanks for your vote, Tara! These glasses will help you measure the perfect pour (right down to pi!) of your favorite spirit, but they aren't intended to be used as measuring glasses in the "can I borrow a cup of sugar?" sort of way. They are great for sipping scotch while discussing Pythagoras' constant, though!

            LOVE these. I prefer the two sided, to double the geek factor! Great for every geek flavor, from the Math PHD to the armchair intellectual. Made in USA and dishwasher safe!! Fantastic!! I could see buying at least 2 sets of these, one to keep and at least one to gift...
