Transcript of Fibonacci
Fibonacci in Nature.
3 indifferent flowers
Gained Knowledge through travelling.
Rabbit Reproduction Problem
Liber Abaci also contained Fibonacci's famous problem the Rabbit Reproduction.
Basic Math principles
How Does it work?
Starting with 0 and 1; the Fibonacci sequence is comprised of adding the previous two number together to create the next number in the sequence.
NOTE: In Liber Abaci, the Fibonacci sequence starts with 1 and 1.
0 + 1 = 1
1 + 1 = 2
1 + 2 = 3
2 + 3 = 5
3 + 5 = 8
This presentation has covered the history, formula and application of the Fibonacci sequence. There was a brief history on how Leonardo Fibonacci founded the sequence. Included was how the sequence can be observed in nature and the basic formula to determine each placement in the sequence.
Also included is an experiment to view the number of petals of a flower. This experiment analyzed the number of petals on different flowers and determined if the number of petals was within the Fibonacci sequence.
Today we know Fibonacci as the greatest Mathematician of the middle ages.
Cameron, Hamza, Babar and Juan
Who was Fibonacci
Born: 1175 AD Pisa, Italy.
Completed education in North Africa
Son of Guglielmo Bonacci
Rabbit Reproduciton Problem
Rabbit Reproduction problem.
Fibonacci Sequence in Nature
Pinecone layers. See Figure 3
Seed head Spiral
Counted the petals.
Observed the results.
Result : 5 petals.
Result: 14 petals.
Result: 5 petals.
Now let’s try to find a Fibonacci number further down the line but counting month by month might not be the most efficient way so we use Bitnet’s formula which can allow us to find the Fibonacci number more directly (See Figure 1).

0 --> 1
1 --> 10
0 = Baby
1 = Mature
1 0 1
Step 1: Pick a Flower.
Step 2: Count the Petals.
Result: Does it match a Fibonacci number.
Please On your way out say thanks to Fibonacci as well.
