Juggling Numbers, Algebra, and Topology

One goal of mathematics is to describe the patterns in the world, from weather to population growth to disease transmission. We will use mathematics to describe juggling patterns, count the different kinds of patterns, and create new patterns. We will make surprising connections to group theory, topology, combinatorics, and number theory. This talk is meant to be accessible to curious people of all ages and backgrounds.
