**How can I spend my math minutes?**

- The list above includes the first 10 terms of Fibonacci’s Sequence. Write out the next 10, 20 (or more) terms by adding the 2 previous numbers (i.e. the next Fibonacci number is 34 + 55 which is 89).
*Yes, I’m aware you can just find a website that lists out the Fibonacci numbers so all you have to do is copy them down, but instead of copying them down, practice your basic math skills and***DO**the math yourself! Watch his TED Video about the Magic of Fibonacci Numbers at https://youtu.be/SjSHVDfXHQ4**“Too much of the mathematics we learn in school is not effectively motivated.” ~Mathemagician Arthur Benjamin**- Watch this Numberphile video about Random Fibonacci Numbers. Then, try the activity he explains in the video using a coin. My sons Toby and Trevor and I recorded ourselves doing the activity here: https://youtu.be/51K6TKbUGXk
