Finding Math in Nature

  "Just as music is auditory patterns that the human mind finds pleasant mathematics captures patterns that the universe finds pleasant, if you like—patterns that are implicit in the way the universe works."- Keith Devlin

Sunflowers - Math in Nature

My absolute favorite thing about math is that it helps us to understand the universe and make some sort of sense of it. I am constantly looking at the natural world for examples of where we find some beautiful mathematical works of art. 

When was the last time you thought of a sunflower as a lesson in math? Not only are sunflowers beautiful, they are also a mathematical wonder.

In the sunflower, we find the Fibonacci numbers. The pattern of seeds in the middle of this plant follows the Fibonacci sequence... 1, 2, 3, 5, 8 and so on. 

We're working here at Fit Geek Boutique to bring you some of these amazing patterns and designs in nature to your favorite activewear!
