During this one-hour session participants will learn about one of the world’s greatest mathematicians and participate in a hands-on activity to further their knowledge on the principles that came from his lifelong dedication to the subject of math. Participants will also learn about the life and goals of Leonardo Fibonacci through a short presentation followed by an art project that uncovers the golden ratio and Fibonacci sequence.
