FIBONACCI SEQUENCE - http://www.surfnetkids.com/resources/fibonacci-sequence/

"Leonardo Fibonacci, sometimes called Leonardo of Pisa, was a
thirteenth-century Italian mathematician. He was instrumental in
bringing the Arabic numbering system to Europe to replace the use of
Roman numerals. He is also remembered for a series of numbers that now
bears his name. The Fibonacci sequence starts with 0, 1 and each
subsequent number is the sum of the two previous numbers. The first ten
numbers in the Fibonacci series are: 0, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, 55."
