#### Fibonacci sequences with simultaneous linear equations

The second of two lessons on Fibonacci sequences with the 9-1 GCSE specification in mind. Please see my other resources for the first lesson, although this also works as a stand-alone lesson. Inspired by a sample exam paper question where pupils had to work out the first two terms of a Fibonacci sequence, given the 3rd and 6th terms.
Activities included:
Starter:
A set of simultaneous linear equation questions, to check pupils can apply the basic method.
Main:
A nice puzzle to get pupils thinking about Fibonacci sequences.
Examples and a set of questions with a progression in difficulty, on the main theme of finding the first terms using simultaneous linear equations.
A lovely extension puzzle where pupils investigate a set of Fibonacci sequences with a special property.
Plenary:
A brief look at some other curious properties of the 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, … Fibonacci sequence, ending with a few iconic images of spirals in nature.
Slides could be printed as worksheets, although lesson has been designed to be projected.
Answers included throughout.
