Starting yesterday, Wednesday, 5/8/2013, all kinds of mathyiness is happening!
Every bit of this I borrowed form Math Jokes 4 Mathy Folks. Hope you enjoy it as much as I did. Go visit his blog. It’s full of smiles.
The month, date and year are consecutive terms in the Fibonacci sequence.
Today, Thursday, 5/9/13 is an arithmetic sequence. d=4
And then there’s Sunday. This is one of my personal favorites because it is so useful, huh?
5/12/13 A Pythagorean triple.
Arithmetic sequence dates are a dime a dozen. In fact, there are six of them in 2013 alone. Pythagorean dates and Fibonacci dates are far more rare. There are only eight Pythagorean dates and six Fibonacci dates in the entire 21st century. To have all of them occur within a six-day span is incredible.
Thank you Patrick. I’m glad I didn’t miss it! So fun! Oh, and May 6 is my mom’s birthday, May 8 is dad’s, and then May 12 is Mother’s Day. None of that has anything to do with math but who cares!
