Today's my birthday. YAS this girl just turned 17 today. But this 16th of August is ultra-special , my most favorite aunt (you may know her as Hibo on my blog) is getting married. Yay!
I will be dressing up and leaving for the occasion anytime sooner. Areeba is sleeping , she has been so so sleepy these days. Surely , Amma Jaan (mom) is not happy about it (hah!) so while she's away , Areeba has freedom to procrastinate as much as she can. I have been spinning like a teetotum for wedding arrangements , I have wonderful Iva on blog today. No-brainer , her blog is always so informative and leaves me hanging with so much useful knowledge (that I would be, IN NO WAY, reading in books or wheresoever)
She knows this chica (pat on my back) is crazy for math so she has amazing (math-ish) post for all of us.
_________________________________________________________________________________Hello all Noor's Place readers and Happy Friday to all!
Plus, funny too. These are all examples of the Fibonacci Sequence. And it is just about everywhere. Here is the first few numbers in the sequence:
- The next number in the sequence is calculated by the sum of the previous two numbers. So 0+1 = 1, 1+1 = 2, 1+2 = 3, and so forth and so forth.
- It was named after Fibonacci, whose real name is Leonardo Pisano Bigollo, an impressive Italian mathematician. He is best known to the modern world for spreading Hindu-Arabic numeral system to Europe; basically the math we use today.
- It appears in nature often - the numbers in a flower petal and spirals on the sunflower tend to be fibonacci numbers as well.
- A spiral is made by using the widths of squares made using the numbers in the sequence.
- The Golden Ratio is 1.618033.. which represents an irrational number with an infinite number of decimal places and it never repeats itself.
- The bigger the pair of Fibonacci numbers, the closer to the Golden Ratio
- Patterns that emerge: every 3rd number is a multiple of 2, every 4th number is a multiple of 3, every 5th number if a multiple of 5, and many more..
- Musical frequencies are based on Fibonacci ratios.
- In the DaVinci Code film, the code used to unlock the safe are fibonacci numbers.
- Fibonacci and Phi (the Golden Ratio) are used in the design of violins and high quality speaker wire.
- The Bee ancestry code: A male bee always has one parent, and a female bee has two. So for any male bee (1 bee), he has 1 parent (1 bee), 2 grandparents, 3 great-grandparents, 5 great-great grandparents, and so on.
And with that everyone have a wonderful weekend! Stop by anytime for small doses of information and knowledge. Knowledge is power; so come by anytime and learn a thing or two.
