Fibonacci Spiral - Golden Spiral Logarithmic spiral whose growth factor is φ, the golden ratio - gets wider (or further from its origin) by a factor of φ for every quarter turn it makes.

matthen: “ Another interesting property of the logarithmic spiral is revealed if you roll it along a horizontal line. This animation shows the curves traced by points on the spiral, and note that the.

An extratropical cyclone over Iceland shows an approximately logarithmic spiral pattern - (Wikipedia).  Bernoulli called this curve the spira mirabilis because of its mathematical property of self-similarity (the size of the spiral increases, but its shape is unaltered with each successive curve).

Artemis Dreaming. The logarithmic spiral of the chambered Nautilus shell.

The logarithmic spiral of the chambered Nautilus shell. The shell gets buoyancy by creating a VACUUM in the chambers! It does this by pulling water out using the salinity of its blood.

The distances between the turnings of a logarithmic spiral increase in geometric progression, while in an Archimedean spiral these distances are constant. Wikipedia

The distances between the turnings of a logarithmic spiral increase in geometric progression, while in an Archimedean spiral these distances are constant.

The Fibonacci spiral is considered a logarithmic spiral, which are found everywhere in nature. Jakob Bernouli, a mathematician from a great family of brilliant people, called the logarithmic spiral spira mirabilis, or "the Miraculous Spiral," so called because the size increases but its shape is unaltered with each successive curve. This kind of spiral shows up in shells, in hurricanes, in flowers and even in the human body!

Hurricanes, galaxies, sunflowers and succulents all have inherent spiral shapes that conform almost perfectly to the ‘golden spiral’, which is derived from a mathematic formula. A golden spiral is a logarithmic spiral with a growth factor of ‘Phi’, which is the golden ratio – that means it gets wider by a factor of Phi for every quarter turn it makes.

For this design, I wanted to present something unique from the standard castle build, but certainly represent mathematics. I chose to create a Nautilus shell sand mold, which represents the Fabonacci and or logarithmic spiral. Once printed, the mold can be filled with sand, and turned over onto the ground, and create a cool spiral visual. Make several at the beach and make an artistic expression!   I found a Nautilus shell image online, and traced the underside pattern, and sculpted the…
