Resource Description
MATH IN NATURE: Fibonacci Numbers Discovery Kit (Individual Kit). Acorn Naturalists. An Italian mathematician published a book in 1202 that told of the discovery of a fascinating number sequence often seen in nature (0,1,1,2,3,5,8,13,21,34, and so on) where the sum of any two numbers in the sequence equals the next number. Using pinecones, this kit explores this sequence, discusses its relevance to science, math, and engineering, and offers suggestions for further student investigations. Kit contains six female pine cones, six pine branchlets, two pine cone halves, and a pine twig (all of which demonstrate Fibonacci sequences), plus a magnifying observation box containing small male pollen cones and a 3x magnifier. Also includes the Fibonacci Activity Guide offering instructions, plus additional Fibonacci-related activities, glossary of terms and related internet links. This intriguing STEM kit is a great way to integrate biology with math and engineering! Ages 8-adult. #KIT-19182.

Internet links in the booklet include:

Overview of the Fibonacci sequence.

Collection of natural images related to the Fibonacci sequence.
