As seen on Nickelodeon, world-class jugglers use patterns and repetitions to demonstrate principles of math and science. Juggling is a wonderful and simple activity leading to endless possibilities. Through juggling this duo uses patterns, gravity, and weight to teach mathematics.

The performance and study guide both contain elements which link juggling, math and science. Other links with curriculum include theater, physical education, music and teamwork/cooperation. The study guide will introduce students to math, science, circus and Scientists-Isaac Newton and Galileo Galilei.
