Other WWW pages on Fibonacci and his series

^^ About Fibonacci himself ( St Andrews University)

^^ Dawson Merrill's Fibonacci and Phi site is excellent and full of useful material and links. I highly recommend it!

^^ ACCESS Indiana's K-12 Teaching and Learning Center has an excellent page Fibonacci, Golden section, Art and Music links that is worth checking out.

^^ Prof. Robert Devaney of Boston University has found the Fibonacci numbers in the Mandelbrot set and it's all to do with those buds on the outside of the set!

^^ The Fibonacci Quarterly is devoted solely to the Fibonacci numbers and their uses. See also the current volume and other books by the Fibonacci Association too.

The early issues of the Fibonacci Quarterly have some useful introductions to the Fibonacci numbers suitable to pre-university (and undergraduate) students and I highly recommend them. The Quarterly started in 1963 but you may need to hunt through some University and College on-line periodicals catalogues to see who holds current and back copies.

The contents of some recent back copies give you an idea of the kind of papers published which are increasingly now only accessible to professional mathematicians. The earlier volumes (1960s and 1970s) are very readable by anyone who has enjoyed the pages at this site.

^^ The Eighth International Conference on Fibonacci Numbers and their Applications was held June 21 -June 26 1998 in Rochester, New York State, USA. Published as Applications of the Fibonacci Numbers, Volume 8 edited by F T Howard, Kluwer Press, 1999. The Proceedings of previous conferences in this series are available as books:

Applications of Fibonacci Numbers, Volume 7 edited by Gerald E. Bergum, Andreas N. Philippou and Alwyn F. Horadam, Kluwer Press, 1998.

Applications of Fibonacci Numbers, Proceedings of the Sixth International Conference edited by G E Bergum and A N Phillipou, Kluwer Press, 1996.

^^ Dr Math is for secondary schools (US: elementary school and high schools) where you can ask "Dr Math" questions. Search Dr Math's archives to find some answers to previously asked questions about the Fibonacci numbers or the Golden section.

^^ Don Cohen, alias the Mathman has some interesting samples of his workbooks on the Web. His approach to maths I heartily agree with and recommend to you - letting people discover the beauty and fascination of maths for themselves. Do have a look at this site if you're an educator, student or just interested in more maths! [Thanks to Bud Weiss of New York City for this.]
