#### Transcript of EPQ Presentation

In the Beginning... When I started my project, I aimed to create a mathematics lesson for Key Stage 2 children that:

was exciting and different to their usual maths lessons
showed how maths can be seen in everyday life

Centre Number: Development of a Mathematics Lesson for Key Stage 2 Children: Investigating the Fibonacci Sequence and Spiral Processes My Lesson Just to give you a taste... First, I completed research into Fibonacci's life and work. I then investigated how the Fibonacci sequence, rectangle and spiral can be found in everyday life. 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, 55, 89, 144... I then planned and designed a lesson - including a presentation, worksheet and activities. With my lesson planned out, I delivered it to a Year 7 maths class and asked for feedback, which I then used to make modifications to my lesson. I then went into Wolborough Primary School and delivered my modified lesson to a group of Year 6 students.
Finally, I created a 'Resource Pack' which can be passed onto other teachers so that they can deliver the lesson. Completing my Research In order to investigate Fibonacci, I used a number of books and websites to find out about his work and life. In my research for Fibonacci rectangles and spirals, I also found out some interesting information about the golden rectangle, the golden spiral and the golden ratio, which links them both together.
The golden ratio is thought to result in the 'divine proportion' which reveals true beauty.
If you find the ratios of consecutive Fibonacci numbers, they actually converge onto this golden ratio. Linking Maths to Art During my research I had also looked into how Fibonacci can be found in nature. Thank you for listening!
