Description

In this activity, problem solving skills are practiced using two well-known problems from Fibonacci's world-changing book "Liber Abbaci". Students are also asked to reflect on the differences and similarities between their solutions and those of Fibonacci. The two problems are the famous rabbit problem which led to what is now know as the Fibonacci sequence and the 30 birds for 30 denarii problem, which is not as well-known to the general public.
