SPRING FLING 2022 ENTRY:

 

 

 

NATURE'S NUMBERS

An Elementary Introduction to the Fibonacci Sequence in 'Fibs'

 

 

 

The

bloom

of Spring

looks messy,

even chaotic.

But there's more order than you think.

 

 

Did

you

know that

hiding in

plants, trees, and flowers

are Nature's favorite numbers?

 

 

These

are

numbers

that pop-up

again and again

all over the natural world.

 

 

Leaves,

seeds,

petals,

and branches

are known to show up

in these numbers and patterns too.

 

 

And

it's

not an

accident.

Nature uses these

numbers as a blueprint for life.

For

plants

to get

the MOST sun

and rain possible,

Nature saw these numbers worked best.

 

 

No 

leaf

shaded.

No petal

hidden from the rain.

No seed squished. A perfect design.

 

 

You

can

find these

numbers too.

Just find a flower

and count the number of petals.

 

 

Are

there

3 or

5 petals?

8 or 21?

Or even 34 petals?

 

 

There

are!?

Then you

found one of

Nature's most perfect

designs using Nature's numbers!
