Wow, this is really something! It’s incredible how the Fibonacci numbers appear in nature so often that it’s actually weird if you don’t find them.
I remember the day I first learned about the Fibonacci Sequence, also nicknamed the Bomb Sequence, back in the 6th grade. Those were the days when I was actually somewhat good at math! Then calculus came along…
Let’s see how much I remember:
0, 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, 55, 89, 144, 233, 377, 610, 987, 1597, ok, head hurts, ow.
That is just so incredibly cool. I love it.
I can’t wait until the next time I see a pine cone! 😉 I’ll have to count the spirals to see it for myself!
that was really cool! I hope teachers are starting to use things like that to show kids how things work in the real world, it sure seems a lot more interesting when presented that way.
I’m re-blogging this one 🙂
Yeah, I agree, if teachers taught like this, material would be so much easier to learn! Thank you for reblogging! 😀

this is a really cool video showing how math works in the real world. yeah, I know, most people think math is really hard and really boring. But it’s really not 😉
