Miss Zoe’s Y7 maths class have been studying Fibonacci and the Golden Ratio, and created some great art works which demonstrates how it works. Damian Y7ZI also provided a very clear explanation.
Fibonacci, also known as Leonardo Bonacci, was an Italian mathematician from the Republic of Pisa. The Fibonacci Sequence is the series of numbers: 0, 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, where each term is the sum of the previous two.
If you make squares with those widths, you get a nice spiral. It has many interesting mathematical properties and it can also occur in nature like in a pinecone. So what we did in our maths lesson was to make a fibonacci sequence and sprial, then turn it into a piece of art.
