We love **math** and all of its **patterns** and **sequences**! The **Fibonacci sequence** might just be our favorite – it’s an amazing mathematical pattern that can be found throughout nature.

To make the **Fibonacci sequence**, you begin with zero and one, and take their **sum** to arrive at the **next number**. In other words, the sum of the two preceding values equals the next value. So the first numbers are:

0, 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13 and so on.

When you use the numbers in the Fibonacci sequence as a guide to drawing squares, the result is a **mathematical spiral** that can be found everywhere – from the petals of flowers to the ways galaxies are formed!
