Transcript of Fibonacci
Another one of Fibonacci's contributions to math and science were introducing the Hindu-Arabic numerals to Europe.
This sequence was made by Fibonacci in which each number is the sum of the preceding two numbers.It is also called the Fibonacci series. It has been said that the Fibonacci numbers are Nature's numbering system and apply to the growth of living things, including cells, petals on a flower, wheat, honeycomb, pine cones, and much more.
3 Historic Events
Fibonacci was a medieval Italian mathematician. He also wrote a book called "Book of the Abacus". This was the first European work on Indian-Arabic Numerals.

Because he was always writing novels, Fibonacci could never keep a job. He worked as a merchant for Fredrick II, teaching the people of Rome about math. There are no records about Fibonacci having any siblings and his family would constantly move from place to place.
