Students will use a slider to animate the graphing of a function of time that models the height of a capsule on the London Eye observation wheel as the wheel turns. Students will discover the concepts of amplitude, frequency, period, and midline. Students will create an appropriate equation to model the height of a capsule on the wheel.
