The Ant and The Turntable-Frames of Reference

In this frames of reference worksheet, students solve 5 problems given the details of a journey an ant takes from the center of a CD ROM to its edge. Students draw a scaled sketch of the turntable showing the motion of the ant from different perspectives, they identify the equation for the radial motion of the ant and they evaluate the arc length integral formula to determine the ant's arc length. They also solve an inquiry problem about the ant's path of travel.
