The mathematics of the Fibonacci series This is a wonderful book - now out of print - which is full of formulae on the Fibonacci numbers and Phi. Do try and find it in your local college or university library. It is well worth dipping in to if you are studying maths at age 16 or beyond! Mathematical Mystery Tour by Mark Wahl, 1989, is full of many mathematical investigations, illustrations, diagrams, tricks, facts, notes as well as guides for teachers using the material. It is a great resource for your own investigations. The Puzzling World of the Fibonacci Numbers Fibonacci Home Page WHERE TO NOW?

Fibonacci numbers 101-300, factorised Fibonacci Numbers 301-500, not factorised) There is a complete list of all Fibonacci numbers and their factors up to the 1000-th Fibonacci and 1000-th Lucas numbers and partial results beyond that on Blair Kelly's Factorization pages The Fibonacci series is formed by adding the latest two numbers to get the next one, starting from 0 and 1: 0 1 --the series starts like this. 0+1=1 so the series is now 0 1 1 1+1=2 so the series continues... 0 1 1 2 and the next term is 1+2=3 so we now have 0 1 1 2 3 and it continues as follows ... 0, 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, 55, 89, 144, 233, 377, 610, 987, ...

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
