Fibonacci Day

Posted by Chris

Fibonacci DayIn mathematics the following series of numbers is called the Fibonacci Sequence:

0, 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, 55, 89, 144, …

This series of numbers begins by adding 0 and 1, resulting in 1. The result, 1, is then added to the last number in the previous string, 1. The new result is 2. The process of adding the result to the previous is repeated, resulting in the sequence above. This sequence is named after Leonardo of Pisa, also known as Fibonacci, who introduced the sequence to Western European mathematics in 1202. And on this day we celebrate this wonderful sequence, today is Fibonacci Day.

We decided to celebrate a little differently today. I have attached a design I created with some text in it describing our celebration (the “CLICK HERE” link). I wanted to use my background in graphic design to create something using the Fibonacci Sequence, closely related to the golden ratio. So feel free to read what I have to say in my little “article”. For those of you too scared of some temporary change I’ve included my write up on the second page of this post, although I can’t guarentee it will make much sense without being able to look at what I was wrote about as you read it. Enjoy!
