Glidden, Peter L.
Mathematics Teacher, v94 n2 p138-44 Feb 2001
Describes computation of a continued radical to approximate the golden ratio and presents two well-known geometric interpretations of it. Uses guided-discovery to investigate different repeated radicals to see what values they approximate, the golden-rectangle interpretation of these continued radicals, and the golden-section interpretation.
