Nature By Numbers

6/27/2010 11:34:00 AM ·

This remarkable video shows how nature and math are intrinsically linked to each other.  Take the Fibonacci numbers, for example.  0 and 1 are the first two numbers of the sequence.  Each of the subsequent numbers is the sum of the preceding two.  So, the sequence goes 0, 1, 1, 2,3,5,8, 13, 21, 34, 55 – and so on – we could go on forever here.

Cristobal Vila, who created this four minute film, takes the Fibonacci numbers as his starting point to show how math can influence anything from a sea shell to a flower or even the wing of a dragonfly.   Here you will see how the principles of mathematics can be found in the most natural of objects. Take a look – if you love both mathematics and the natural world you will find this short animation thrilling.
