Sun flowers!

And various other parts of nature.

They have Fibonacci's numbers embedded in them, and the ratio approaches the golden number, which is also a nice exercise in elemental geometry where we can also see the golden number.

For the Fibonacci numbers we could refer the sequence and the formula, some applications, some properties, or not?

For the elementary geometry we could refer to the properties of straight lines, circles, planes, polyhedrons, the sphere, the cylinder, or not?

Do you have an other better idea?

Lots of fun stuff you can talk about.

As for the Fibonacci one, what do you think about the following structure:

- An introduction about the topic
- A little biography of Leonardo Fibonacci
- Some words about the Fibonacci sequence
- Some properties about the Fibonacci sequence
- Applications

Which applications in section 5 are you thinking of?

Btw, if it were me, I'd include a couple of neat videos.

For starters one in the introduction - to immediately grab the attention of the audience.

And more videos in other parts of the presentation.

There are some very nice videos around that show how Fibonacci appears in nature.

I'd also highlight the connection to the Golden Ratio, which ties it to elementary geometry as well.

That may deserve its own section.
