Upcoming presentation

“Fibonacci-ish: Encounters of the Fibonacci Kind Where You Least Expect Them… ”

featuring Saad Mneimneh

Wednesday, May 1
Presentations at 4:00 pm and 7:00 pm

(in person)

People have always been fascinated by the Fibonacci sequence, the patterns associated with it, and of course, the well-celebrated golden ratio.  Join Saad Mneimneh, Associate Professor of Mathematics at Hunter College and The Graduate Center of The City University of New York, to learn how three problems, each of which started as a simple mathematical or programming exploration, turned out to exhibit something “Fibonacci-ish” in nature when pursued in more detail.  Add a little math to your life in this engaging presentation!
