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

Pink Moon April 7 and 8, 2020

    pinkmoonTonight brings the brightest moon of 2020!

Tonight’s Supermoon is also known as a “Pink Moon,” the first full moon of spring. Native Americans named this moon because of the pink phlox that blooms around this time. It has special names in other countries too such as Bak Poya, Egg Moon, Full Sprouting Grass Moon, Growing Moon or the Full Fish Moon. STEM Alert: Not all Pink Moons are also Supermoons. A Moon has to come within 90% of its closest approach to Earth (or 224,865 miles) to be formally defined as a Super Moon.

STEM Alert: The Pinkish hue (sometimes more orange if you are in a city), is from photons passing through dusty particles in the Earth’s atmosphere. Earth’s atmosphere of oxygen and nitrogen filters the bluer wavelengths (through refraction) of moonlight so your eyes may see more of a pink tone. Full moons also have some tide effects.

If you need a break from being inside, tonight’s the night!
