Students were asked to write any questions they had on this video of a ferris wheel. As a class we settled on " where does the red bucket finish at the end of the ride?" Then we decided what info we needed. We collected some data from the video. pi on 4 radians every 5 seconds. Students then solved the question for a three minute ride.
For the sequel I told students I had a fear of heights after 50 feet. I asked "For how much time was I frightened over the three minute ride?"
