The Code; Mathematics in the Natural World

If any of you have easy access to the BBC or BBC iPlayer, you may be interested in this 3 part documentary on the BBC, called The Code.

The first episode explored common numerical patterns in the natural world, such as prime numbers, the fibonacci sequence etc.

The next will look at shapes where fibonacci and fractals will surely feature…

Again these shows emphasise that amidst the complexity of the world, patterns are all around us.
