WHAT IS FIBONACCI

The fib sequence is a set of consecutive numbers that go 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13... and so on. Many people are able to figure out this sequence very quickly and once you understand this pattern is very easy to understand.You are able to find this patterns all around the world including in places such as nature, art, and almost everything that people find to be aesthetically pleasing to be able to look at.

THE HISTORY

The fibonacci sequence was founded by Leonardo Pisano also known as Leonardo Fibonacci in the late 13th century. This sequence was created by Leonardo from him traveling the world I know it sound astonishing that someone who created one of the most famous patterns just because he traveled the world. Italy at the time was broken up into small different towns and villages. Of course each of these small little towns had different types of currency so they would have to find a way to convert the amount money but for some reason this took longer than usual. Leonardo decided to test out his fibonacci pattern. This ended up working out but you have to remember that the sequence was still under construction so it was different. Leonardo decided to finish this sequence up by looking at the patterns of them.

RABBIT THEORY

Rabbits are able to mate after they have been in the world for at least 1 month and every month they are able reproduce a new pair of rabbits. So suppose after one year how many rabbits would there be? Go ahead and use the fibonacci sequence in order to figure this out.If you were to continue to go along with the fibonacci sequence to the 12th number the number would end up being 233. So after 12 months there was 233 rabbits that ended up in the fields. This was the main way how this sequence was founded by Leonardo Pisano

MOST IMPORTANAT ASPECT I LEARNED

I was able to find out how you can find this pattern all across the world.we can all see it in our daily lives just by simply going outside and exploring nature. You are able to go up to many different kind of plants or looks at patterns on animals skin and find the fibonacci sequence. You are also able to find different patters in nature not only the fib sequence but things like the pascals triangle and all the patterns inside of that mathematical factor.

WHY I CHOSE NATURE

The reason why I chose nature was because during this unit in math we talked a lot about how these patterns relate with nature and I thought it would be cool if I could go more in depth about how these patterns really connect us with nature. I also thought it would be fascinating to find out more and more about where else you can find the pattern and you can actually find this pattern in snow flakes so I created a painting of half a snow lake.
