The content on the site is very helpful and entertaining. The site describes Fibonacci's numbers simply with a variety of useful visual aids.Some of the examples used to describe how Fibonacci's sequence works is a little bit confusing but most of them get the point across well. The examples used to describe the golden number was also fascinating. I found that using the examples was not difficult and the questions did not require too much critical thinking. It was an easy to learn system.Comment for Fibonacci Numbers and the Golden Section from Darla Cooley

I found this content educational and interestingI had read about this in my math book but this helped me understand better because of the visual aid.The material was easy to understand,pleasurable to use. Great for the first time user.I thought it presented the content accurately.It made the concept easy to grasp because of the way information was related to every day items.Comment for Fibonacci Numbers and the Golden Section from Rebecca Sarkissian

I spent about 7 mintues looking over the page, and basically I was looking over for titles that striked my interest. I think the one that I liked alot was about Fibonacci and who he was. I think its great when learning math to understand the history too, that way you can pick up interests to students who love history and can relate math through it. I think the quality of the content is great, its extremely informative, and looks like it is updated consistently. I think it could enhance teaching because of all the information it contains...but, I personally wish there was better visuals ( like maybe pictures of rabbits to replace/represent numbers) that were interesting besides the use of numbers as the visual aid. That would probably keep me more engaged when viewing this site. It was really easy to view this website, especially when it provided a Content Box at the top of the website so I can see a preview of the remaining website and it categories without have to look through the whole thing. Overall I think its great!Technical Remarks:Better VisualsComment for Fibonacci Numbers and the Golden Section from Kris Mims

The website is pretty useful, I spent about 10 minutes trying to navigate to this page, a few times it didnt load right away (might be my computer) As for the content, I enjoyed it. I like Fibonacci numbers and think that material that is at our disposal like this should be used and brought to attention more.Comment for Fibonacci Numbers and the Golden Section from pati brown

This Web site is full of information. I spent about an hour browsing the links and looking at it from a teaching perspective as well as a practical perspective. I found that there was a mathematical explanation for a graceful spiral. Who knew! Yes, I'm new to Fibonacci and mathematical theories, but what I found in the art and architecture links opened up a new world to me. As a newbee, the puzzles were a bit over my head, as were some of the explanations. But, new to Fibonacci as I am, the concept clicked when I could link a string of numbers to an aesthetic in art. I recommend checking out Brian Knott's ray tracing in the art section... and in the architecture section, the Cal Poly Engineering Plaza is stunning. Unfortunately I found many broken or outdated links which was a bit frustrating. However, I still recommend this site for the novice or advanced mathematician as well as those who teach art or math. This is a very complete Web site.Technical Remarks:Many broken or outdated links.Comment for Fibonacci Numbers and the Golden Section from dean levita

this is very detailed and interesting... it helped me understand fibonaccia numbers a lot more-dean levitaComment for Fibonacci Numbers and the Golden Section from brenda pinal

I like the fact that we did cover Fibonacci numbers in my class. What really impressed me about this website is that the information was useful if you just wanted to get a quick overview but if you a more clear understanding in depth that is also available to you.Comment for Fibonacci Numbers and the Golden Section from Sally McMullen

I think this material is *very* well structured and packed with just about all that one could imagine about Fibonacci Numbers and The Golden Section and more! I spent about a good 45mins to an hour on this website, reading up how Fibonacci # can be found in various ways. The Rabbit Sequencing was very interesting and I liked the activities that went along with it too! I enjoyed reading about the history behind the man, and controversy over the theory. The quality of the materials is outstanding, very well thought out and clearly represented in a manner that is easy for all levels to appreciate. I have no doubt that students would benefit from using these materials to build a foundation of knowledge on this subject and explore new things too.Technical Remarks:I believe that first time users those less 'tech-savvy' would have no problem using this site. It's straightforward, point and click!Comment for Fibonacci Numbers and the Golden Section from Jennifer Brown

I browsed around the site, clicked on links, and surveyed it from the perspective of both a math student and a content judge; read through various portions of the site and subsequent links. Content of the site is excellent, filled with extensive information on the Fibonacci numbers and its related topics; plenty of information along with numerous references and external sites to explore. There is information on who Fibonacci is (personal information, biography) along with what the Sequence is, how it is used, and its history. Very relevant to learning math/Fibonacci sequence and would most definitely be useful for anyone researching this topic, as the information is extensive and well-researched, along with being very well-represented. Site is easy to navigate, links are clearly marked, and would be great for students to use as well as teachers.Technical Remarks:Site is easy to navigate, links are clearly marked with no 404 errors or anything similar. Easy to use, easy to navigate forward and backwards within the site, and well thought out layout.
