Title: The mathematics of juggling

Abstract: Come one come all to the juggling performance of a lifetime! You've seen three balls juggled, maybe even four; but what about 12 or 50? You're in for a treat, because we'll do just that! Well, theoretically that is... Instead we'll explore the combinatorics behind the types of patterns that can arise from juggling. Unfortunately, this may not be as entertaining, but I at least have the hand-eye coordination to write math on the board, so we'll go with that! And if you don't want to see that, I'll make GIovanni juggle a bit at the beginning.
