Fibonacci Patterns

Why not try exploring some Fibonacci Patterns?

Nature’s Secret Number Code

Take a look at the number pattern below:

1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, 55…

To form the pattern, start by writing 1 and 1. Add them together to get 2. Add the last two numbers: 1+2=3.

Continue adding the previous two numbers to find the next number in the series.

These numbers make up the famed Fibonacci sequence: a group of numbers that mysteriously appear over and over again in nature. 

A man named Leonardo of Pisa, who lived in Italy in the middle ages, noticed that he kept coming across these numbers in the natural world.

This hidden code could be found in the numbers of petals on a flower, the structure of fruits and vegetables, the proportions of the human body, and even in the unique shape of spirals in nature.

How far can you continue the pattern? Can you find examples of where this pattern occurs in nature?
