What is the Fibonacci Sequence & the Golden Ratio? Simple Explanation and Examples in Everyday Life
The Fibonacci sequence is a series of numbers in which a given number is the addition of the two numbers before it. So, if you start with 0, the next number will be 1, followed by 1, followed by 2, followed by 3 and so on. As you can see, every number in this series or sequence is obtained by adding the two preceding numbers. This simple series of numbers is referred to as the Fibonacci sequence for Fibonacci series. And individual numbers in this sequence are often called Fibonacci numbers. To the uninitiated, it may just seem like a series of numbers, but the Fibonacci sequence has been discovered and rediscovered in various forms, not only in mathematics, but also in nature and our everyday lives. There’s another exciting offshoot of the Fibonacci sequence - the golden ratio. Seashells are one of the most common examples of the golden spiral in nature. Ocean waves, hurricanes, flower buds, snail shells, spider webs are some of the many naturally-occurring examples. #science #animation #fibonacci Intro - (0:00) What is the Fibonacci sequence - (0:57) Leonardo of Pisa and the Fibonacci sequence - (1:39) Fibonacci sequence and the Golden Ratio - (2:56) SUBSCRIBE to get more such science videos! https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCcN3IuIAR6Fn74FWMQf6lFA?sub_confirmation=1 Follow us on Twitter! https://twitter.com/abc_science Follow us on Facebook! https://facebook.com/sciabc Follow our Website! https://www.scienceabc.com

TED-Ed Student Talks
Math is everywhere
When going through your day, you may not realize how much math surrounds you. Second grader, Jim Patrick, sees math everywhere. From the fractions in the pizza you eat for lunch to the multiplication you can use to check the time, Jim encourages us all to recognize the math in our lives. This Talk was given at TED-Ed Weekend in New York City. To learn more, go to https://www.ted.com/attend/conferences/special-events/ted-ed-weekend The TED-Ed Clubs program supports students in discovering, exploring and presenting their big ideas in the form of short, TED-style talks. In TED-Ed Clubs, students work together to discuss and celebrate creative ideas. Club Leaders receive TED-Ed's flexible curriculum to guide their Members in developing presentation literacy skills to help inspire tomorrow's TED speakers and future leaders. This presentation was completed by participating in a TED-Ed Club and produced independently of the TED Conferences. Only approved Club Leaders (ed.ted.com/clubs) are able to upload TED-Ed Club presentations on behalf of their students. *If you see any video that should be flagged as offensive, please let us know by emailing email@example.com
