Consider this picture of a Ferris wheel. The wheel has a

Angle | .... | ||||||||

Height |

The wheel goes around (counter-clockwise) several times during a ride. How can you reflect this fact on your graph? Update your graph.

Include angle measures greater than

in your graph. Draw a triangle at

and solve for the height. The hypotenuse(radius) is . What is the maximum distance above or below the center hub that the top of your seat attains during the ride?

Write an equation to model the County Fair Ferris wheel ride.
