My early interest in numbers and patterns lead me down a (nonlinear) path to mathematics, which has led me to the twisty world of knots.  Mathematically, knots are non-intersecting closed curves in space. We will use sequences and patterns to explore this world and play with a classic question in knot theory - given a knot diagram, how do I identify the knot?  There will be plenty of examples, conjectures, and fun!
