Why Lesson Planet?
Young scholars approximate the arc length of a cycloid. In this arc length of a cycloid instructional activity, students solve a problem from an episode of NUMB3RS involving the rotation of a tire. Young scholars take th integral of the the cosine function. Students plot a cycloid as a tire rotates. Young scholars approximate the arc length of a curve by drawing segments spanning the arc.
