Use the .isqrt() method to get the floor of the square root of an integer, as an integer.

That seems to work well for the examples suggested in the question.

Define juggle and print_juggle_sequence as follows:

def juggle(n):
if n % 2:
return (n^3).isqrt()
return n.isqrt()

def print_juggle_sequence(x):
print x
while x > 1:
x = juggle(x)
print x

Then try it on 37:

sage: print_juggle_sequence(37)
