What is STEAM?

STEAM is an acronym for Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts & Math.   is an educational movement that incorporates the “A” for the Arts into the traditional STEM teaching philosophy.  STEAM recognizes that to be successful in technical fields, individuals must also be creative and use critical thinking skills which are best developed through exposure to the arts.   

This movement was originally founded by Rhode Island School of Design and is now adopted by institutions, corporations and individuals worldwide.

Who is Fibonacci?

Leonardo Bonacci, better known as Fibonacci, was a 13th century Italian mathematician counted amongst the greatest mathematicians ever to have existed. He is credited to be "the most talented Western mathematician of the Middle Ages”. 

He made many significant contributions to mathematics and popularized the Hindu-Arabic numeral system to the Western World. He gave a detailed account of the Hindu-Arabic numeral system in his book the ‘Liber Abaci’ (Book of Abacus or Book of Calculation) and also gave to Europe the sequence of Fibonacci numbers. 

Born to a prosperous merchant, the young Fibonacci travelled widely with his father and received the opportunity to study the numeral systems in countries around the Mediterranean coast. He was fascinated by the ten symbols of the Hindu-Arabic numeral system and was determined to introduce the system in Europe. Back in Italy after his travels, he published ‘Liber Abaci’ which became a very popular work on mathematics. Emperor Frederick II was much impressed by the mathematician’s work and encouraged him in his intellectual pursuits. With royal support, Fibonacci received the opportunity to correspond with other contemporary mathematicians and collaborate with them in mathematical enquiries. 

There are many mathematical concepts named after Fibonacci but his work in number theory was almost wholly ignored during the Middle Ages.
