is formed by starting with 0 and 1 and then adding the latest two numbers to get the next one: 0 1 the series starts like this. 0+1=1 so the series is now 0 1 1 1+1=2 so the series continues... 0 1 1 2 and the next term is 1+2=3 so we now have 0 1 1 2 3 and it continues as follows ...it's a weird sequence that only uses these numbers cuz it always starts with 0 and 1.

Actually, the Fibonacci series starts 1,1 but otherwise that is correct. There are many other series that can be built up with two different numbers or with three or more starting numbers.The twelfth term of the Fibonacci is 144 which is the square of the term number It is the only term with this property.If you divide one term by the next, the result gets closer and closer to 1.61803398874989....... (this is given only to the limit of accuracy of Excel) which is termed the 'Golden Section'. If you have a rectangle whose sides are in this ratio, you can draw off a square and leave a rectangle whose sides are in the same proportion.There is a Greek letter given to the 'Golden Section', chi. Chi has the strange property that if you raise it to any power the two parts of the answer are terms of the Fibonacci Series.chi^2 = 1chi + 1chi^3 = 2chi + 1chi^4 = 3chi + 2chi^5 = 5chi + 3chi^6 = 8chi + 5, etc., etc.

Don't leave it in boiling water for too long otherwise it will be sticky but do remember to add salt to the water.
