Student Outcomes

  • Students review how changing the parameters A, ω, h, and k in f(x) = A sin(ω(x - h)) + k  affects the graph of the sine function.
  • Students examine the example of the Ferris wheel, using height, distance from the ground, period, and so on, to write a function of the height of the passenger cars in terms of the sine function: f(x) = A sin(ω(x - h)) + k.
