SpongeBob's House is Not a Pineapple | Maths | Scoop.it
Are SpongeBob's pants really square? Is Gary's shell a logarithmic spiral? No. But, how can we figure out if SpongeBob's house is actually a pineapple? There's math everywhere! Let's use Fibonacci numbers to help us determine this mathematical quandary.
Callum Biggs's insight:

Question 1. As evident with pineapples, the fibonacci sequence occurs frequently in plants and nature. Investigate three examples of this. Are there any benefits or reasons why this occurs?

Question 2. Find the link between the fibonacci sequence and the 'Golden Ratio' of 1.61803398875.
