1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, 55, 89, 144
What do these numbers have in common? What pattern do you see? These numbers are a part of what is known as the fibonacci numbers. Fibonacci numbers are found by adding the two previous numbers. So the number after 144 would be 233.
How can you spend your Math Minutes this week?
- Read about the fibonacci numbers here. Read the about first three sections at least, you can read further on if you want.
- Get graph paper and make a spiral using a fibonacci sequence, read through the previous link for reference.
- These numbers can be found in nature. Can you think of other real life examples of fibonacci numbers?
