Stunning photographs of flowers and seeds demonstrate Fibonacci numbers: “the sequence of numbers–1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21…–in which each successive number is equal to the sum of the two preceding numbers.” Growing Patterns starts off simply, explaining the concept and giving examples to count. It grows beautifully complex, but never confusing.
End pages include more information and a glossary. Sarah C. Campbell combines science, math and nature in a uniquely fascinating form. Go to her website to find an informative book trailer video about Fibonacci or teach math lessons using principles from the book.
