**The Fabulous Fibonacci Numbers** ¼ The most ubiuitous and perhaps the most intriguing number pattern in mathematics is the Fibonacci seuence In this simple pattern beginning with two ones each succeeding number is the sum of the two numbers immediately preceding it 1 1 2 3 5 8 13 21 ad infinitum Far from being just a curiosity this seuence recurs in structures found throughout nature from the arrangement of whorls on a pinecone to the branches of certain plant stems All of which is astounding evidence for the deep mathematical basis of the natural world With admirable Every book rating is subjective I have no doubt that somewhere out are people who would love this book I thought it was okay but found myself unable to read it in any detail I skimmed or skipped over a fair bit of material simply because I couldn't get my brain engaged with itHere's the trouble it's a math book I'm pretty good with math and have been known to play with numbers and formulae from time to time just for the fun of it But these days I don't seem to have the mental stamina for reading math Reading math isn't like reading text at least not for those of us who don't do it all the time For most of us it takes considerable concentration It's real workThe authors are clearly in love with their subject and really really want readers to fall in love with it too but they are mathematicians and present the subject like mathematicians rather than popularizers Result? A lot of math And that's okay for readers who are into it but I'm afraid that most people just aren't going to want to go there Even some of us who are technically capable of going there might decide to take a passOn a side note its rather ironic that my wife put this book into my hands during a trip to the library well after my first novel The Fibonacci Murders had been released By then it was too late to serve as research material Oh well BOOK é The Fabulous Fibonacci Numbers ↠ Alfred S.

**Alfred S. Posamentier ↠ The Fabulous Fibonacci Numbers EPUB** Clarity two veteran math educators take us on a fascinating tour of the many ramifications of the Fibonacci numbers They begin with a brief history of a distinguished Italian discoverer who among other accomplishments was responsible for popularizing the use of Arabic numerals in the West Turning to botany the authors demonstrate through illustrative diagrams the unbelievable connections between Fibonacci numbers and natural forms pineapples sunflowers and daisies are just a few examples In art architecture the stock market and othe I couldn't get past page 30 and I am a math person I found the book boring and missing many justification for what the author was looking at Though the proofs are in the back of the book they are not detailed enough unless you are fluent in number theory and then they are obvious I didn't read far enough to see if Posamentier talked about all of the numbers in nature that are NOT Fibonacci numbers selective omission? While the series is interesting I think you can find patterns and meaning in just about anything if you try hard enough eg Bible code Nostradamus Mayan astronomyI suggest a book about fractals instead
