Mathematics - Fibonacci Sequence and Fractal Geometry
Exploring the Fibonacci sequence (the Golden Ratio) and Fractal Geometry in Nature and Art. For an Artist may tell you that they are a method of geometrical use of space in a painting. A Biologist will explain how they are found in the beauty of nature. A Mathematician can provide solutions ranging from simple algebraic and geometric problems to more advanced problems in number theory. A Structural Integrator can share how the golden ratio is shown in human anatomy.
Spiral Pattern in Pine Cone Pine cones are a classic example of the logarithmic or equiangular spiral in nature. This is from a Short-leaf pine. These spirals form from processes where there is turning at a constant angle but accelerating growth. This describes the growth of many structures in the plant kingdom. © Kevin Kopchynski
