Donald Duck Teaches us Mathematics

Fibonacci numbers, fractals, and the Golden Ratio.

From "Donald in Mathmagic Land" (1959)

This updates the excellent "Nature by Numbers" video uploaded by Owen Higgins. I watched Owens' upload this morning and it made me recall this video, which was often used to augment elementary school instruction in the 1960s.

Hat tip to Gregsto for some terminology.

  • Not all the terms are in there but the concepts are demonstrated. I watched Owen's vid this morning and thought "I've seen that stuff! Forty years ago. And there was a duck involved."
