Your young airplane enthusiasts will enjoy this collaborative task of graphing an airplane's distance from the ground as it flies in a perfect circle. They will discover that they have graphed a sinusoidal function that comes from the periodic nature of the airplane's distance from the ground. Connecting key features on the graph with the real-life situation is also a benefit that comes from this collaborative task.
- If possible, your learners would be more engaged in this task if there was access to a real model airplane or quadcopter that could be demonstrated.
- Includes very detailed description of the solution
- Helpful commentary for the teacher
