Ferris Wheel (1): Modeling with Trigonometric Functions

This applet graphs the height of an person riding a Ferris Wheel vs. time. Use this applet as a resource to check solutions to problems involving this context. There are many parameters you can adjust here: Period Number of Revs to Complete Height of Lowest Car Diameter of Wheel You can also manually enter the x-coordinate of the red point and/or the y-coordinate of the purple point. (These points are also moveable.)
