# Who loves math?

People who love math learn all about the Golden Ratio by Fibonacci.

The Fibonacci Sequence is the series of numbers: 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, ... (I've also seen the series of numbers start with the number 0.) The next number in the sequence is discovered by adding the two numbers before it: the 2 is found by adding the two numbers before it (1+1), the 3 is found by adding the two numbers before it (1+2), the 5 is (2+3) etc...

The Golden Ratio is taught in math classes across America. This ratio can be applied to many geometric forms including circles and triangles. I learned from one of my art teachers that The Golden Ratio is a wonderful design idea that artists use to create visually pleasing compositions.

The Golden Ratio spiral is found in nature. Next time you look closely at petal arrangements in flowers look for the spiral. It's there.

This painting of Kevin was inspired by the husband of one of my dear friends. He's a high school math teacher in Henderson, NV. His name is Kevin. The cute dog is named Max!

And, one more thing... Today is Fibonacci Day. Why? Look at the date 11/23, and you'll see the sequence..
