I teach 9 yr olds. We are currently partitioning numbers to 100000. Plus rounding.

I didn’t say that a 9 year old was doing it - I said that it was a little unfair if that was the case.

We did the Fibonacci sequence in year 6, drawing pictures of rabbits breeding. I think it came up in the Martello Tower game, too.

Pretty, pretty sure I never did the Fibonacci sequence at any point in school


Just really like the name Fibonacci, it’s got swagger. I’m not a numbers person, but I’m glad the numbers people are having fun here.
