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…
