#10 Math Minute: Math Holidays

Happy Fibonacci Day!  Today is 11-23 which happens to be the first 4 digits of Fibonacci’s Sequence!  How might one celebrate Fibonacci day?  Maybe by doodling or eating pineapple?

Last Friday, 11-13-15 was Odd Day where the month, day, and last two digits of the year are 3 consecutive odd numbers.  How was this day celebrated?  In my 6th grade pre-algebra class, we did some “odd problems” and students chose to dress oddly.

How can you spend your Math Minutes this week?
  1.  When will the next odd day happen?  What about the next Fibonacci Day?  How would you celebrate these math holidays?
  2. Pi Day is coming up on March 14 (3/14).  Square Root Day will happen on April 4, 2016 (4/4/16).  Plan a Pi Day and/or Square Root party by listing materials, food, etc.  Submit your plan to the EY Coordinator at your building and you just might have the opportunity to host your party during school and invite a few of your closest friends.
  3. Post a comment about something new you learned about Fibonacci’s sequence from the links above.  When leaving comments, make sure to type in your first name only, your grade, and school (no email addresses).

  1. I learned that in the fibonacci sequence is the series of numbers where a number is the sum of 2 numbers before it. Also I learned that November 23 2058 will be the biggest fibonacci day ever because 2+3 is 5 and 3+5 is 8
