The following resources include problems and activities aligned to the objective of the lesson that can be used to create your own problem set.
?
Create a graph of a function that represents the height above the ground of the passenger car for a 225- foot diameter Ferris wheel that completes three turns, where each turn takes 2 minutes. Assume passengers board at the bottom of the wheel, which is 5 feet above the ground, and that the ride begins immediately afterward. Provide appropriate labels on the axes.
Explain how the features of your graph relate to the situation.
