Gift Ideas for a Math Nerd Baby

by JoHarrington

These parents know their Pi from their Pythagoras, and now they've just multiplied by one. Check out these clothes for their baby!

The wonders of the universe open up through your number crunching. You see the measurements and equations in everything.

Now your family has triangulated with the addition of one. Is this your maths nerd in training? It figures that they'll need some appropriate attire.

I calculate that there will be something on this page for you. Mathematics + infant equals baby nerd clothing! Can you see your little one in any of them?

And for those less gifted in the math department, I'll explain along the way why each item adds up for the off-spring of those who know their way around a multiplication table.

The square root of sixteen is four. Two squared is four. 

Why just say '4' when mathematics provides many more inventive ways to equate it?  Your math-loving nerd will definitely appreciate it!

This might be a good moment to explain the word 'nerd'.  It used to be an insult, cast by the intellectually inferior towards those with working brain-cells.

Today it's been reclaimed and people like me proclaim our nerdiness from the rafters. We are nerds and proud!

Which just goes to show that you shouldn't try picking on those more clever than yourself. The tactic has an in-built flaw, which will see you out-thought at every turn.

Nerds 2life indeed!

Cute as Pi Baby Clothes

Pi is one of the constants of the mathematical world. You pronounce it the same as 'pie'.

Pi can be found everywhere! If you divide the circumference by the diameter of a circle, you would get 3.1415926535897932384626433
832795028841971... etc.  Always.

It is one of the great building blocks of the world, the universe and everything.

Pi is represented by the Greek letter 'N'. Confusingly, this is because it relates to the 'periphery', which begins with a 'P'. The Latin 'Pi' is written as 'N' in Greek.

This all goes to prove that mathematicians deliberately set out to confuse mere mortals.

On the other hand, Pi is good for puns too; and the variation that you can get on your infant's clothing is equally infinite.  And this is where we come in! 

Whether rendered as Pi, π or the beginning of its numerical sequence, it's all pronounced 'pie'.

Hence (from l-r beginning at the top) we have a pirate, a cutie pie, Pi rocks, sweet as pie, a really clever mathematical formula which reads 'I'm a cutie pie' and finally sugar pie.

Your average nerd will get the joke; and baby will certainly look cute as 3.1415926535...

Proof That Mathematicians Love Pi

Vihart explains some of the deep intricacies of Pi using pie and lands us into Tau.

Tau is the New Pi Baby Creeper

Of course, if you are convinced by Vihart's pie-making Tau arguments (if only because it's twice the lovely things to eat), then you might want your infant joining in.

Tau is the new 2π is the legend on this baby's creeper.

Buy this if you want your infant geek to appear far more intellectual than all those kiddies crawling around in Pi puns.

Though naturally, you will run the risk of having to explain Tau to all of their parents.

Mathematical Formulas Baby Shirts

Who wouldn't want their infant's shirt to explain Euler to an unsuspecting world?

If your math knowledge is good enough to debate Pi and Tau, then you might want to reach even further.

Each of the formulas and equations on these infant shirts are designed to look terrifying to the non-mathematically minded. For example, the designer's notes for the first one reads:

Starting with the fundamental definition of the exponential function this formulation steps through the Euler formula on the way to the Euler identity. Analysis, complex function theory and number theory brought together in a beautiful symphony of insight and erudition.

Clear as mud?  Your math loving parents will love it on their child!

The baby creeper takes us right to the point where math meets physics to produce Schrödinger's wave equation. 

It might have been the basis for Quantum Mechanics, but nevertheless it is pure mathematics. It can't be derived from any observation of natural laws.  Or to put it as American physicist Richard Feynman did, "Where did we get that (equation) from? Nowhere. It is not possible to derive it from anything you know. It came out of the mind of Schrödinger."

In other words, pure genius! The sort of thing which only the final baby might be referring to, as (s)he asks, 'what part of (insert horrendously complicated formula) don't you understand?'

Er, all of it?

Cute Math Baby Clothes

All going a little too high-brow for you? Let's bring this back down to Earth!

A couple of cutesie math nerd tops now for those of us exhausted by all of the formulas and equations.

It's right back into the nursery, where baby belongs, for this cartoon Math Chick t-shirt. 

As with all of the clothes on this page, the material is 100% cotton, pre-shrunk to fit.  It's created with a 1x1 baby rib knit weave.  In this case, the neckline is envelope style, in order to allow it to easily slip over your little one's head.

Meanwhile, dancing stones tell us what we all already knew - Math Rocks!  They are even juggling numbers to really underline the point.

This 100% cotton creeper fastens over the diaper with three, silver-colored snaps.

Math Rocks crawler will give baby the freedom of movement to play nicely and explore his/her environment. While everyone looking on will recognize a maths nerd in the making from the legend on their shirt.

While the formula shirts are obviously more intellectual, I personally think that baby will look really beautiful in these nursery level math shirts.

I'm holding out for Richard having kids. Well, not him personally, as that really would be weird mathematics. But you know what I mean.

Ahahaha, if my friend Rissa ever had a baby, I'd want to get the Euler's equation one for her! She'd love it, I'm sure.

JoHarrington on 07/11/2012

I have to agree with you there!

JoHarrington on 07/10/2012

All my maths nerd friends are refusing to have off-spring, just so I can get them one of these shirts. -.- Spoil all of our fun.

I wish my Maths lecturer friend would procreate! These are so cute

JoHarrington on 07/06/2012

I always veered more towards the humanities, but I'm definitely a nerd there; not to mention a geek when it comes to computing and gaming.

Guilty as charged.

I'm going to check out that website now!

Love my nerds, math is awesome. My kidz love think geek dot com, fun site for smart people. I have two friends who are about to have baby boys, these are perfect for them as they are both nerds.

If you are in the market for a maths nerd t-shirt for a baby, then I want to have the gossip forthwith! :)
