Math is logical, functional and just ... awesome. Mathemagician Arthur Benjamin explores hidden properties of that weird and wonderful set of numbers, the Fibonacci series. (And reminds you that mathematics can be inspiring, too!)

When I'm thinking of then name "fibonacci" I do not think of these numbers at all. I just remember season 1 of prison break where John abruzzi and Scofield talked about finding fibonacci because abruzzi wanted to kill him.
If I would have had a teacher that was excited to teach mathematics maybe I wouldn't hate and suck at mathematics so much today. But then again most teachers dont get paid very much, but then again if you're a teacher, you want and love to teach before anything else.
Oh Meh Gha(d)- Fibonacci interest comes from our daily life experience of time's rate of decrease. The "magic" number gives us a spinning vortex that actually represents the passage of time our "memory" (of the past) has brought forward. It represents the rate of which every particle in our universe is shrinking as it wastes away to eventually violate the laws of the preservation of "matter" and all the other "WE" have given/applied to what we have failed to understand. Einstein's warped space(/time/energy/matter/existance).
Intererested. That problem in my school.. mathematics is not have function. My friend think mathematics are hard to learnt by them. I think, we should have the teacher which is can makes our interested.
These are not fibonacci numbers.. these are Hemachandra numbers... the Indian mathematician Hemachandra wrote this formula in a Sanskrit text centuries before fibonacci.... West has the habit of not telling true facts.. ...
A very good read is, "Is God a Mathematician?" (No, it's not trying to prove God) It asks how—if mathematics is an abstract construction of the human mind—it can so perfectly explain the physical world. Is it part of the fabric of physical reality?
"For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities, His eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly seen, being understood from His workmanship, so that men are without excuse." Romans 1:20 There is a GOD HIS name is I AM, HE exists in three parts and HE manifested HIMSELF among men to die for the sins of all of mankind, but HE took HIS life up again. Just like the Fibonacci sequence GOD has other laws for life and one law is this: "For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord." Romans 6:23 If you do not believe upon the name of JESUS and turn from your sin, you will die my friend. Experience Eternal Life through the remission of sins by the blood of JESUS. HE shed HIS blood because only HE could pay the debts that HE required. "For GOD so Loved the world, that HE gave HIS only begotten SON, that whosoever believeth in HIM should not perish, but have everlasting life." John 3:16
I live in the US and I ventured into Forex to help my family lead a comfortable life but for a whole year I struggled with no actual meaningful profits, I was at the lowest point in my life my wife almost left me, just at the beginning of this year I came across *Lukka Semenov* who a lot of traders have been praising over the years I decided to give him a try and within these few months I have earned thousands using his *Lukka Binomial Strategy* and I am now able to live in my own house. To get this strategy just carry out a simple google search and get things going.
What i wonder is why do we use a 2 digit value system for 10's why cant it just be a arbitrary single digit expression without altering value to the left? Example
01, 02, 03, 04, 05, 06, 07, 08, 09, 0θ
11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 1θ
21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 29 2θ
Anyway this seemingly simple change would alter mathematical results. Maybe the 9 is an after effect of adding one value, one digit to the left. You're cutting into the 10 value with a 1 value. Get it?
I use Fibonacci for finding breaks in my stock charts as a part of technical analysis. News events may affect stock movement, but absence of news does too. Fibonacci projections and retracements complement MA 50/200 and Bollinger Bands.

dunno, this was kinda mediocre, he still spent most of his time explaining calculation and only made a brief reference to its application in nature. A step in the right direction to be sure but it is going to take a lot more than this to truly inspire people, especially ones not mathematically inclined.

As a child, there was a portrait in our family home in Paris that I always loved. Today, it’s known as Maya with Doll – but to me it was just a portrait of my mother, albeit a remarkable one. “Your grandfather was a painter,” she would say, whenever the subject of the canvas, one of many that hung around the house, came up in discussion. It was only when I began school, and whispers about my heritage started to follow me, that I realised what an understatement that was. My grandfather was far more than a painter. He was the defining figure of 20th-century art – and, as I would learn later from years of academic study, a true genius. It was a revelation that would shape the course of my life in many ways. When Picasso died – in 1973, the year before I was born – he left behind 45,000 works, not to mention personal objects and correspondence.
