The explorations with a spreadsheet demonstrate Fibonacci numbers and the ratio between each pair. The GSP exploration demonstrates how to construct the ratio geometrically. The use of calculators to prove the definition and properties of this ratio are also appropriate.

Phiculator, the Golden Ratio calculator from Thismanslife : Design, Graphics, Photography // James Mellers, Nottingham UK

by sbrothier & 2 others (via)
Phi, the Fibonacci sequence, the golden ratio, the golden section, the golden mean, the divine proportion. It’s known as many things, but the ratio they all refer to is the same, 1 : 1.61803399... Found in art, architecture, design, and most intriguingly, in nature, this ratio has been used throughout history and today for its aesthetic beauty. Phiculator (pronounced "fye·cu·la·tor") is a simple tool which, given any number, will calculate the corresponding number according to the golden ratio. Useful to anyone wishing to create anything with divine proportions!
