Fibonacci Numbers

A sequence of numbers in which each number is the sum of the two previous numbers (1, 1, 2 and so on). Some technical analysts use Fibonacci numbers to determine which securities are bullish or bearish. Some of the ways they use Fibonacci numbers are Fibonacci time zones, Fibonacci retracement, Fibonacci fans, and Fibonacci arcs.

The Fibonacci numbers are the numbers generated in a sequence when you start with 1, 1, then add the two previous numbers to get the next in the sequence e.g., 1, 1, 1 + 1 = 2, 1 + 2 = 3, 2 + 3 = 5, ...

An injective function f: V(G) [right arrow] {[F.sub.0], [F.sub.1],[F.sub.2], ..., [F.sub.q-i], [F.sub.q+i]}, where [F.sub.q+i] is the (q + 1)th fibonacci number, is said to be almost super fibonacci graceful if the induced edge labeling [f.sup.*](uv) = |f (u) = f (v)| is a bijection onto the set {[F.sub.1], [F.sub.2], ..., [F.sub.q]}.

After a few weeks of guided exploration, many children can, with just a few minutes of effort, set up a spreadsheet to list the Fibonacci numbers. They can also program spreadsheets to generate odd and even numbers, a multiplication table, squares, square roots, and exponential growth.
