The Mathematics of Juggling

Juggling has advanced enormously in recent decades, thanks in part to the mathematical study of possible patterns. The late computer scientist Claude Shannon was also an avid unicyclist, juggler and tinkerer. In the early 1980s, Shannon published the first formal mathematical theorem of juggling, and mathematicians have been fascinated ever since. You can find a great video about the math of juggling by National Math Festival presenter Dr. George Hart as well!
