This site was easy to use and very detailed about the topic.

Technical Remarks:

The use of color provided a guide to the site.

This is a very detailed site with many diagrams/equtions. It shows geometry and fibonacci numbers in everyday use which makes it more exciting. It also gives info on the mathematician who came up with this concept/problem. A problem with the site is that if you are new to math, geometry, or finonacci numbers the language could be over your head.
