Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving!

What Thanksgiving wouldn’t be complete without Abraham Lincoln’s Thanksgiving Proclamation

               “I do therefore invite my fellow citizens in every part of the United States, …, to set apart and observe the last Thursday
of November next, as a day of Thanksgiving and Praise to our beneficent Father who dwelleth in the Heavens. And I
recommend to them that while offering up the ascriptions justly due to Him …, they do also, with humble penitence for
our national perverseness and disobedience, commend to his tender care all those who have become widows, orphans,
mourners or sufferers in the lamentable civil strife in which we are unavoidably engaged, and fervently implore the
interposition of the Almighty Hand to heal the wounds of the nation and to restore it as soon as may be consistent with
Divine purposes to the full enjoyment of peace, harmony, tranquility and Union.” ~October 3, 1863

Happy Fibonacci Day ~ November 23

Happy Fibonacci Day! Leonardo Pisano Bigollo (aka Leonardo Fibonacci) (1170-1250) created the Fibonacci Sequence in 1225 to solve the puzzle of rabbit breeding rates. It has since been found to occur widely in nature.

Today’s date corresponds to the first numbers of the Fibonacci sequence – 1 1 2 3

This video offers a exposition of the patterns recurring in the Fibonacci sequence

This video synergizes the number sequence to music.

There is a lively discussion already on Twitter at the hashtag #FibonacciDay and #MathMonday


FindingFibonacciOne book that approaches Fibonacci and his life and work is the extremely interesting book called Finding Fibonacci by Keith Devlin

Weekend Ed. Quote ~ November 6

“I love the man that can smile in trouble, that can gather strength from distress, and grow brave by reflection. ‘Tis the business of little minds to shrink; but he whose heart is firm, and whose conscience approves his conduct, will pursue his principles unto death.” —Thomas Paine (1776)
