### Fibonacci Sequence Poetry Form

May. 9th, 2011 06:31 pm0, 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, ...

Start with 0.

0 + 1 gives you 1 again.

The 2 is found by adding the two numbers before it (1+1)

Similarly, the 3 is just (1+2),

And the 5 is just (2+3),

and so on!

The mathematical Rule is xn = xn-1 + xn-2

The Rule for Fibonacci poetry is fairly simple. Each line has the number of words that would be next in the Fibonacci Sequence.

**Judi's Fibonacci Sequence Teaching Poem:**

**Fibonacci**

Poem

Starts short.

Lines' word count

Are easily determined by adding

The two previous lines' number of words together.

In theory, you could go on making lines for a very long time,

But in practice, a few steps along the sequence will probably get your point across clearly, while making math geeks happy!
