Who says dead old guys can't be fun? Leonardo Fibonacci wrote the first math book so "regular" people could understand math (they called it arithmetic back then). He introduced the mathematical sequence, which is now called the Fibonacci sequence, to the general population. It's pretty fascinating...take a look!
So take a look around you, the world is full of the Fibonacci pattern. If you find something interesting take a picture or bring it in and we can try to test it!
