Today is a pretty good day for the mathematically inclined! All of the numbers in today’s date (8/5/13) are in the Fibonacci sequence. If you use the American ordering of dates, the numbers are in order.

The Fibonacci sequence is 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, 55, 89, 144 etc. Each number is the sum of the previous two numbers, and it continues on to infinity. The ratio between these numbers approximates 1.618034, the golden ratio, and both the Fibonacci sequence and the golden ratio are expressed throughout nature.
