Lesson 3 of 11

Objective: SWBAT sketch the graph of a function of a Ferris wheel rider's height over time and to plot key points (maxima/minima) on that function's graph.

Big Idea: As a person rides the Ferris wheel, what happens to their height over time? Students create graphs of these functions with as much detail as possible.
