A Ted Talk featuring the magic of Fibonacci

If you missed it, Arthur Benjamin gave a fantastic Ted Talk, The magic of Fibonacci numbers.

Benjamin says that mathematics is not just for calculation and application. "Wouldn't it be great if every once in awhile, we did mathematics simply because it was fun or beautiful or because it excited the mind?" he asks.

Benjamin explores the Fibonacci sequence and many of the intricate and amazing patterns associated with it. He concludes by saying, "Mathematics is not just solving for x, it's also figuring out why."
