Siteswap

I had to write a report in Microsoft Word for a computer course I’ve been taking. I’m sufficiently technically advanced that an assinment on Word provides little to no learning, so to keep it from being any more mind numbingly boring than it had to be, I decided to write a paper on juggling pattern notation—more specifically siteswap.

You can download it here.

It is no great piece of writing, but it is written for a different audience than most siteswap explanations, so it should provide a different perspective for people who have trouble understanding siteswap, or who have never heard of siteswap. Since I was writing the paper for non-juggling, computer science teacher, I tried to simplfy it enough that it could be understood by a non-juggler, but in depth enough to intrigue his nerdy brain.

This means that those of you who are siteswap experts need not jump down my throat for implying that the digits in siteswap stand for throw heights, or most of the other technically inaccurate generalizations. I know better, but I’m trying to dip their toes in the shallows before I throw them in the pond.
