44. The Magic of Fibonacci Numbers

Mathematics is the science of patterns and we study it to learn how to think logically, critically, and creatively… Like so much of mathematics, there’s a beautiful side to it that I fear does not get enough attention in our schools. We spend lots of time learning about calculation, but let’s not forget about application; including, perhaps, the most important application of all: learning how to think. If I could summarize this in one sentence, it would be this: Mathematics is not just about solving for X, it’s also figuring out (WH)Y. – Arthur Benjamin in the 6:24 TED Talk, The Magic of Fibonacci Numbers, http://www.ted.com/talks/arthur_benjamin_the_magic_of_fibonacci_numbers#t-366901.
