Delving Deeper
Delving Deeper: Fibonacci and Related Sequences

Richard Askey 

February 2004, Volume 97, Issue 2, Page 116

This issue focuses on problems dealing with identities for Fibonacci numbers. Some of these identities are considered, and general strategies used to help discover, prove, and generalize the identities are discussed. The aim of Delving Deeper is for teachers to pose and solve novel math problems, expand on mathematical connections, or offer new insights into familiar math concepts. Delving Deeper focuses on mathematics content appealing to secondary school teachers. It provides a forum that allows classroom teachers to share their mathematics from their work with students, their classroom investigations and products, and their other experiences. Delving Deeper is a regular department of Mathematics Teacher.
