I hope everyone is having a wonderful November—happy holidays, all! I thought it would be fun to share a couple math- and holiday-related links. This month marks a historic overlap between Hanukkah and Thanksgiving, as well as the annual celebration of Fibonacci Day (which took place 11/23 in honor of the first several Fibonacci numbers). Here are some posts I found interesting.
- Jacob Karamas discusses math, marketing, and “Thanksgivukkah” at The Algemeiner.
- Dr. Jonathan Mizrahi further explores the math behind the two holidays coinciding at his blog.
- Vi Hart has a fascinating three-part video series on Fibonacci numbers observed in nature.
- At Wikipedia, Fibonacci numbers in popular culture.
I hope you enjoy the links, and again, happy holidays!
