Topic: Fibonacci sequence
Specific Purpose: To inform the audience the appearance of the Fibonacci sequence in history to the present day.
Attention Getter: Everyone used numbers in our daily life. And, numbers have relationship between each other. One of the relationship between numbers called sequence.
Introduce Topic: Today, I would like to introduce the Fibonacci sequence. It is a sequence that sum of the two previous numbers. It started with 0 and 1. So then, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21 … so on and so forth. Then, we conclude the nth term of the Fibonacci sequence is:
Credibility Statement: The Fibonacci sequence was introducing in my programming class. My professor taught the algorithm and the origin history of the Fibonacci sequence. Fibonacci sequence appear not just in mathematics and computing, but at a wide area in the latest discovery. Some people might claim that the Fibonacci sequence is the nature’s numbering system. However, according to Donald E. Simanek, the article “Fibonacci Flim-Flam,” he convinced that the Fibonacci is not use to “explain” anything in nature, but for describing patterns and laws found in nature.
Preview of Main Points: The Fibonacci sequence is unique and organize. I will divide into chronological time events begin with the invention, its further discovery and its appearance in pattern and laws found in our world.
(Transition: To begin with, I want to talk about the invention of the Fibonacci sequence. )
