**Explore how this famous mathematician discovered a sequence that mimics nature.**

- The Number Devil by Hans Magnus Enzensberger; Rotraut Susanne Berner (Illustrator); Michael Henry Heim (Translator) The international best-seller that makes mathematics a thrilling exploration In twelve dreams, Robert, a boy who hates math, meets a Number Devil, who leads him to discover the amazing world of numbers: infinite numbers, prime numbers, Fibonacci numbers, numbers that magically appear in triangles, and numbers that expand without end. As we dream with him, we are taken further and further into mathematical theory, where ideas eventually take flight, until everyone--from those who fumble over fractions to those who solve complex equations in their heads--winds up marveling at what numbers can do. Hans Magnus Enzensberger is a true polymath, the kind of superb intellectual who loves thinking and marshals all of his charm and wit to share his passions with the world. InThe Number Devil, he brings together the surreal logic ofAlice in Wonderland and the existential geometry ofFlatlandwith the kind of math everyone would love, if only they had a number devil to teach them.Call Number: REALISTIC FIC ENZPublication Date: 2000

- The life and numbers of Fibonacci by R.Knott and the Plus team In the 13th century, mathematician, Leonardo di Pisa, or, as he is known by his nickname, Fibonacci, traveled to northern Africa and learned about numbering systems other than Roman. Although he brought these other systems (Hindu and Arabic) to Europe in his book, Liber Abaci (Book of Calculations), he was more famous for introducing a sequence of numbers. This article illustrates the Fibonacci numbers with examples of sunflowers, rabbits, bees, and the nautilus shell. To explain: a number is added to the number before it to get the next Fibonacci number, 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, etc.To explain: a number is added to the number before it to get the next Fibonacci number, 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, etc.
