The Fabulous Fibonacci Numbers

R areas of society and culture they point out numerous examples of the Fibonacci seuence as well as its derivative the golden ratio And of course in mathematics as the authors amply demonstrate there are almost boundless applications in probability number theory geometry algebra and Pascal's triangle to name a fewAccessible and appealing to even the most math phobic individual this fun and enlightening book allows the reader to appreciate the elegance of mathematics and its amazing applications in both natural and cultural settings . Amazingly inspiring and wonderfully eye opening Math showing the wonders of God s creation

The most ubiuitous and perhaps the most intriguing number pattern in mathematics is the Fibonacci seuence In this simple pattern beginning with two ones each succeeding number is the sum of the two numbers immediately preceding it 1 1 2 3 5 8 13 21 ad infinitum Far from being just a curiosity this seuence recurs in structures found throughout nature from the arrangement of whorls on a pinecone to the branches of certain plant stems All of which is astounding evidence for the deep mathematical basis of the natural world With admirable. This turned out to be a difficult read when it was expected to be a fun romp through one very important branch of mathematics Based on the write ups I had expected to be able to follow along with the theory of Fibonacci numbers and then dive into the joy of its application across the spectrum Instead I kept getting bogged down with proofs and explanations which is ironic since the author freuently states that the proofs are in Appendices Even the applications were heaped with mathematical theory and proofsI am not math dumb in fact made a career in financial structuring which reuired a fairly high level of math Yet I was many times while reading this book left mired in proofs which started to get annoying

Clarity two veteran math educators take us on a fascinating tour of the many ramifications of the Fibonacci numbers They begin with a brief history of a distinguished Italian discoverer who among other accomplishments was responsible for popularizing the use of Arabic numerals in the West Turning to botany the authors demonstrate through illustrative diagrams the unbelievable connections between Fibonacci numbers and natural forms pineapples sunflowers and daisies are just a few examples In art architecture the stock market and othe. I couldn t get past page 30 and I am a math person I found the book boring and missing many justification for what the author was looking at Though the proofs are in the back of the book they are not detailed enough unless you are fluent in number theory and then they are obvious I didn t read far enough to see if Posamentier talked about all of the numbers in nature that are NOT Fibonacci numbers selective omission While the series is interesting I think you can find patterns and meaning in just about anything if you try hard enough eg Bible code Nostradamus Mayan astronomyI suggest a book about fractals instead
