Fibonacci Day

Good morning! Today is 11.23 which means it is Fibonacci Day! If you are unfamiliar with what the Fibonacci Sequence is, take a look here and see what it’s all about! I’m a nerd, I know.  😉

In short, the sequence is comprised of numbers that equal their two predecessors. So, for example, the third entry would be 2. The first two entries are always 1 and 1. It goes on infinitely. To start off, the sequence is 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, 55, …

1 + 1 = 2
1 + 2 = 3
2 + 3 = 5
3 + 5 = 8
5 + 8 = 13

And so on. It’s a pretty cool application and kinda fun to try and figure out. If you look on the wiki site I gave you up above it has a fun little squares the spiral out in the Fibonacci Sequence. As you can see, Fibonacci Day lands on 11.23 every year since those numbers are the first four entries. Clever thinking! Just like Pi Day and Tau Day too!

So go on out and celebrate this mathematical holiday! Let me know if you do anything fun!

Until next time…

About Three Handed Mommy

Mother of one, wife to one. Hoping for more children in the future but so far I'm a three handed mommy. One hand is in school, another in loving my family, the last is on here (and all that comes with it). I love origami and I doodle once in a blue moon. Maybe I will share some drawings, both old and new. I have a slight obsession with Hatake Kakashi, Batman, rubber duckies, pandas, and Pokemon. Then again, my obsession may prove to be more than slight on more than one occassion...don't judge. :P Since this is new and all to me, please bear with me while I find my rhythm and posting habits. Hope you enjoy what I put up here! Feel free to pin anything unless stated otherwise in a post. :)
