Fun At Home Activities

Kids home from school? Some fun activities to try…. There are lots of fun things to do on the Math Fairy website and on other great websites. I’ve been thinking about some ideas since we started to learn that school would be closed so I thought I’d share those ideas here… Try a Fibonacci Walk! Try a Fibonacci Walk! Recall that the Fibonacci sequence is a pattern of numbers identified hundreds of years ago by an Italian mathematician. The pattern is additive and goes like this….1,1,2,3,5,8,13,21,34,55…. Where you add the two previous numbers to derive the next number. Example: 1+1 = 2, 2+1=3, 2+3 = 5, 3 +5 = 8, 5 + 8 = 13 and so on. One of the super cool, mathemagical things about the Fibonacci sequence is that it exists in nature. The spirals of a pinecone expand in a Fibonacci pattern, leaves can grow from a Read More →
