I’ve been going through my maths book (Chris has borrowed the Physics one) and just read about the Fibonacci sequence. This is very simple: it starts with 0 and 1 and each subsequent number in the sequence is the sum of the previous two:
0 1 1 2 3 5 8 13 21 34....
This simple sequence has all sorts of properties – amongst them explaining the distribution of sunflower seeds:
I’ve never really paid much attention to the relationships of numbers in sequences but having seen this – and the other things that Fibonacci can explain – I’m hooked!
Little Hampden Organ
John and Brian finished the pew removal today: they’ve done a fantastic job and the Chancel is ready for the arrival of the organ.
I said yesterday that work had just started – not really the case. We started on this project in November 2008. The Diocesan Organ Adviser visited us just over a year ago. More of the steps we’ve had to go through later.
