1,1,2,3,5,8,13, 21

Hmmm…what do the numbers mean?

fibonacci numbers?

If by chance I have omitted anything more or less proper or necessary, I beg forgiveness, since there is no one who is without fault and circumspect in all matters.
Leonardo Fibonacci

The Fibonacci sequence is based on adding the two previous numbers. 1 + 1 = 2, 2 + 1 = 3, 2 + 3 = 5, etc. The ratio of the two previous numbers will converge as shown in the picture (Gif) below. There a numerous examples of Fibonacci numbers and ratios in nature, science, math, computing, architecture, genetics, etc.

Today is Fibonnaci day – 11/23 (1,1,2,3). Explore Fibonacci at

How to Celebrate Fibonacci Day
Celebrating Fibonacci Day is best done by studying and researching the Fibonacci sequence, and going out in nature and finding where it exists, which is everywhere! You can even look in your own home and yard and find places where the Fibonacci sequence structures the world around you. You can also take some time to research the great man himself, and all of those who have built off his work. There’s so much about the Fibonacci sequence that leads to fascinating discoveries and even just reading about it is a pure joy! So get out there on Fibonacci Day, listen to some great music, and learn a bit more about the world around you. Also

Or, write a Fibonacci poem, like this one:

can find
such solace
in this simple verse
made of certain syllable words.

Confused, count the syllables.
