Do You Know Fibbonacci?

I never heard of Fibbonacci (an Italian mathematician) until a college Botany class. He fascinated me because his sequence could determine where the next leaf would come out on a given plant. How cool is that?

Later in an art class I learned about the golden mean and that it is based on his sequence too. It's everywhere!

I recently came across this article and it's the best description of his sequence that I have found. I love the suggestion that understanding it could affect one's success.
