Math lesson plans and discussion Ideas:
1. Research information relating to one or more of the following mathematicians:
Euler, Gauss, Godel, Grothendieck, Nash, Ramanujan, Riemann, Selberg, and Turing
2, What information do you know about Pascal's Triangle?
3. Why is the name Pythagoras familiar?
Leonardo Fibonacci, sometimes called Leonardo of Pisa, was a thirteenthcentury Italian mathematician. He was instrumental in bringing the Arabic numbering system to Europe to replace the use of Roman numerals. He is also remembered for a series of numbers that now bears his name. The Fibonacci sequence starts with 1. 1 and each subsequent number is the sum of the two previous numbers. The first ten numbers in the Fibonacci series are: 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, 55
