Use Google (or another search engine) to find a use of Fibonacci numbers or the Golden Ratio in nature, art, music, architecture, or some other real-world application.
Fibonacci numbers or the Golden Ratio in nature
In this discussion, you will work in small groups in online discussions to explore applications of Fibonacci numbers and the Golden Ratio in music, art, and nature. This group discussion will help prepare you for activity M6A2, in which you will research an application of mathematics in art or music.
- Use Google (or another search engine) to find a use of Fibonacci numbers or the Golden Ratio in nature, art, music, architecture, or some other real-world application. Make sure you find an idea that is NOT covered in your text.
- Describe the application that you have found.
- Clearly explain and summarize the important mathematical ideas in your own words.
- Include a citation and a link to the source where you learned about it. You may cite using APA format. Here is a Citation Tip Sheet (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site.. More information on how to cite properly can be found on the Excelsior Library’s Citing Sources (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site. page.

Your description should be detailed enough for your classmates to understand the application area and its mathematical connections.
Be sure to complete all parts of the instructions above. You will likely learn more about the mathematical ideas of this application as you discuss with your classmates and instructor, and that is okay. Describe as much as you understand so far and what questions you have remaining. Then, update your explanation before the end of the module.
