Abstract

In this article we are going to explore a very interesting sequence of numbers known as the Fibonacci sequence. The exploration of the sequence can lead to an absorbing classroom activity for students at the middle school and secondary school level. Students can explore many patterns within the sequence using a spreadsheet like MS Excel and the observations can lead to an enriching discussion in the classroom.
