Colin Wright from the UK will deliver a talk aimed at Senior Cycle second level students in the University of Limerick. This talk will look at the art of juggling from a mathematical perspective. We’ll see a selection of the patterns and skills of juggling while at the same time develop a simple method of describing and annotating a class of juggling patterns. By using elementary mathematics these patterns can be classified, leading to a simple way to describe those patterns that are known already, and a technique for discovering new ones.
