One of those formulas every mathematician loves ( I think ):

$$F_n = \frac{1}{\sqrt{5}}( \phi^n - (1-\phi)^n )$$

Here's how MathDoctorBob explains it.

Although I like The Doctor's videos ( I wished the real doctor would show up accusing me for abusing his name but taking me for a ride in his phone box anyway ), I wouldn't like to have Doctor Bob as a tutor in class, I simply wouldn't be able to catch up and I am not the audible type anyway. I like to read a bit, play and think a bit, read a bit, and so on. Every person has its own unique style of learning that works for him. Part of studying is discovering your own learning style.

Oh, and I think this formula beats the one of Binet ( although strictly speaking not in closed form ), because it fascinates me that the Fibonacci numbers are actually -in- the triangle of Pascal.

$$F_{n+1} = \sum_{k=0}^{n} {n-k \choose k}$$
