Information About The Program

Visualizing Sine Curves (Tool)

This program gives students a visual representation of sine curves. The hope is that students can relate properties of the ferris wheel to properties of the sine curve. The height of the center of the ferris wheel is their vertical shift, the speed of the ferris wheel determines the B value, the radius of the ferris wheel translates to the amplitude of the curve and the C, or phase shift, is determined by the starting location of the ferris wheel.
