|Ivars Peterson (Math Muse for Kids)|
|Mathematicians have invented a way to write down juggling patterns as sets of numbers. They look at the order in which balls are tossed into the air and then caught. Each toss or catch happens on a particular beat, as if the juggler were keeping time to music with a definite rhythm. [Produced 10 times a year by the publishers of Cricket magazine (in association with Smithsonian magazine), Muse features articles and activities for children 8 years old and up.]|
