The Webinar on Fibonacci and the Magic of Rabbits took place on Thursday, July 22nd, 2021 from 2 pm until 3 pm, with Dr. Juan E. Napoles, Professor at the Northwestern National University and at the National Technological University in Argentina, as our invited speaker. This virtual event was free and open to the general public.
The invited speaker started the virtual event by sharing Fibonacci’s story. Dr. Juan E. Napoles then presented the growth process of a population of rabbits and highlighted that the number of pairs of rabbits per month is determined by the Fibonacci sequence. The speaker explained that in the Fibonacci sequence, every number is equal to the sum of the two previous numbers, and therefore, we obtain 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13… Dr. Juan E. Napoles also described the relation between the Fibonacci sequence and the golden ratio and showed examples of where we can find the golden ratio in our daily lives.
