Monday Video -- Juggling and Geometry

[Every Monday for the next few months, we'll be posting a short video clip here at You Do the Math. All will have at least a tenuous connection to science, technology, engineering, or mathematics. Teachers can use these as writing prompts or as starting points for larger lesson plans (I'll try to include some hints now and then), but the main purpose is simply to have a little fun.]

Michael Moschen is the kind of juggler who wins  MacArthur Foundation Genius Grants. Not surprisingly, his routines are fascinating to watch and there's enough geometry and physics in this one to kick off an appropriate lesson or just to remind kids that you can have fun with these ideas.
