By S. D. Weitzenhoffer on March 5, 2013
My daughter pointed this mug out to me at the George Observatory gift ship, and I knew I had to get it.

It's a nerdy mug. It's nerdy enough that I find myself nitpicking over it:

1. It's not really a MATH mug; it's mostly a physics mug.

2. Einstein's formula for general relativity is missing the mass term, which is forgivable if one assumes empty space, but it's either missing a factor of c^-4 on the right-hand-side, or should drop the G to be in geometrized units.

3. I would have excluded some of the formulae and included others; e.g., the simplest ratio (a/b = c/d) is included, which hearkens back to the ancient Greek concept of commensurability and their inability to deal with infinity and irrational numbers, but i would have instead included the Pythagorean Theorem, which is more useful and more universally known.

However, despite these quibbles (or perhaps BECAUSE of them -- how often will I get nerd sniped by a coffee mug?), I love it.

I have received several compliments on my mug. As a chemist, I was surprised to find so many chemistry and physics related equations... so it is not just for the mathematicians! It is great for physicists and chemists as well.

That said, it is funny shaped mug. Short and wide. It holds 11 ounces I believe (and general mugs hold 12 ounces?? - so maybe slightly less volume). The handle is a bit odd as well. It is not very wide, so I put only two of my (female) fingers through it, when usually I would use three fingers on a mug handle, so it could be uncomfortable for some people to hold.

I have had it for several months now and not a single chip, so no complaints against the material, though I haven't tried banging it against the sink yet.

Plus for those people who never clean their coffee mugs, the great thing about having a black mug is that it doesn't show what you were drinking the day before. And there are definitely several professors out there with disgusting white-turned-brown mugs.

UPDATE 08/14: About two years after purchasing this mug, I dropped it on the floor and it broke. So I promptly bought a new one (no brown-stained white mug for me) and it is slightly different. The old one had a clear glaze over the whole mug, so it was shiny black. The one I just received does not, it is more of a matte-gray/black, which I imagine may be to make it look more like a chalk board. Notably, the equations are now the top layer on the mug. I hand-wash only my mug since I just leave it at work, but I was concerned upon seeing this that if you use a dishwasher the equations may wear off (but I can't say for sure since I never put it in a dishwasher). It still has that funky handle I mentioned initially.

Love the mug, both of my sons love it. Just shows caffeine can be converted to math using the correct formula. No problems, no cracking, do like a bigger mug when drinking coffee but I probably drink too much anyway. One of the formula on the mug is written incorrectly, if you can't find it right away shame on you. I don't think this detracts from the cup but adds to the allure. How well do you know your famous equations? In ten years you won't remember how much you spent on the cup but you may remember sitting around drinking a cup of coffee and having a nice conversation.

bought this for my mom when she graduated with her engineering degree because every single day she would call me and b**ch about her math classes and how much she hated calculus and trig etc. So had to get it for her. Great sentiment. She loved it!

Its actually quite large which is perfect for her because she loves coffee!

one of my friend who is also a phd has been creeping over this mug for a while so I bought one for me and one for him. This mug is really heavy, looks great, and is much better than those cheap mugs you get from target. And for us nerd, this is definitely a fun decoration to add into the office.

I purchased this for my granddaughter as she is graduating from her university this semester with a majot in Mathametics. She was very happy and found this cup with a sense of humor. Enjoys her coffee more now. I was VERY HAPPY to find this and I see another cup for my grandson, who university major is Chemical Engineering. I will purchase that cup when he finishes his 4 year. Both are going on to obtain a Master's degree in each of their fields... so they will continue to study a couple of years more. I was thrilled to find cups that match both of their university majors. It is a nice "store" to match cups with careers. Thank you... Maybe I get on for myself as I have a degree in nursing. :-} I recommend this site for career coffee cups.

Clever idea printing mathematic equations on a mug. It has the look of a professor's handwriting on a black chalk board (do these still exist in classrooms?) Math students and geeks love this mug for their morning java. Students also like giving these as gifts to their math instructors. I have one and have never had a problem with cracking (as written in the other review.) Great product!

We adore this mug! We bought one a long time ago and I dropped it and broke it so I ordered a new one. We have given this mug as gifts too. Most importantly, it includes instructions on the bottom so that you won't accidentally put your coffee in the wrong end. The online video is also helpful. Mugs can be so difficult.

Husband is an engineer and son is an aerospace student...they love this mug! The older mug was a bit glossy. This new model is matte. Some liked the glossy one, but others like the matte one.

It might look a little suspicious if you bring this mug with you on math test day (hey dude, it's just coffee), but might be worth a try.
