The first two numbers in the Fibonacci sequence are either 1 and 1, or 0 and 1, depending on the chosen starting point of the sequence, and each subsequent number is the sum of the previous two. The spiral that is created by the Fibonacci sequence is found in nature, for example as seen in the unfurling of ferns.</p> <p><a href="https://www.mathsisfun.com/numbers/fibonacci-sequence.html">http://www.mathsisfun.com/numbers/fibonacci-sequence.html</a> <br> <a href="https://www.ehow.com/video_5226071_draw-fibonacci-spiral.html">http://www.ehow.com/video_5226071_draw-fibonacci-spiral.html</a></p> <div class="material-resource"> <div class="material"> <p><strong>What's Needed:</strong></p> <ul style="font-size:12px;line-height:20px;"> <li>Construction Paper</li> <li><a target="_blank" href="{{store direct_url="products/accessories/cutting-mats/westcott-self-healing-mat-24-x-36-inches-15352.html"}}">Westcott Self-Healing Cutting Mat #15352</a></li> <li><a target="_blank" href="{{store direct_url="westcott-designer-compass-set-with-carrying-case-dcs-10.html"}}">Westcott Designer Compass Set #DCS-10</a></li> <li><a target="_blank" href="{{store direct_url="westcott-18-stainless-steel-office-ruler-with-non-slip-cork-base-10417.html"}}">Westcott 18” Stainless Steel Ruler #10417</a></li> <li>The World’s Favorite Scissors&trade; </li> <li> <a target="_blank" href="{{store direct_url="westcott-7-fun-and-fashionable-student-scissors-16401.html"}}">Westcott 7" Fun and Fashionable Student Scissors #16401</a></li> </ul> </div> <div class="resource"> <p><strong>Helpful Resources:</strong></p> <ul style="font-size:12px;line-height:20px;"> <li><a href="{{store direct_url="products/scissors/kids-scissors/scissor-caddy.html"}}" title="Scissor Caddies"><img border="0" alt="Scissor Caddies" src="{{media url=westcottbrand/CAbuttonscissorcaddy.jpg}}" usemap="2071" ></a></li> <li><a href="{{store direct_url="products/scissors.html"}}" title="Teachers Scissors"><img border="0" alt="Teachers Scissors" src="{{media url=westcottbrand/CAbuttonteacherscissors.jpg}}" usemap="2072"></a></li> <li><a href="{{store direct_url="products/scissors/anti-microbial-product-protected-scissors.html"}}" title="Kids Scissor Packs"><img border="0" alt="Kids Scissor Packs" src="{{media url=westcottbrand/CAbuttonkidsscissorpack.jpg}}" usemap="2073" ></a></li> </ul> </div> </div> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p style="text-align:center;margin-top:5px;float:left;width:100%;clear:both;"><em>Brought to you by Westcott &ndash; The World’s Favorite Scissors</em> <!-- Free Scissors Banner Begin --> <!-- Free Scissors Banner End --> </p> </div> <!-- Blue Materials Box END --> <!-- Instructions Row Begin --> <div style="width: 100%; margin-bottom: 20px; float: left;"> <!-- Step 1 Begin --> <p><strong>Steps:</strong></p> <div class="cp-subleft-section"><img width="300" src="{{media url=westcottbrand/Fibonacci-Spiral/fibonacci1.jpg}}" alt="Fibonacci1"> <p>1) Use the Westcott 18” Stainless Steel Ruler and the mechanical pencil included in the Westcott Designer Compass Set to mark out squares as shown.</p> </div> <!-- Step 1 End --> <!-- Step 2 Begin --> <div class="cp-subright-section"><img width="300" src="{{media url=westcottbrand/Fibonacci-Spiral/fibonacci2.jpg}}" alt="Fibonacci2.jpg"> <p>2) Begin with the smallest squares first which are each 1” x 1”.
