Math Quest. And so my journey begins

So I'm signing up today because I want to understand how to create a looping Bézier curve.
I know how Bézier curves work, but how do I make one that loops smoothly?
I understand that at each control point adds another line to the algorithm.
3 points requires 2 lines
4 points requires 3 lines
5, 4 etc.

What I don't understand is how to get the starting point and end point to loop smoothly.

Is this possible with a Bézier curve?

But yeah. That's why I came here.
I'm interested in math because I need it for my programming hobby. I want to be able to do really cool things.
