Ferris Wheel

This is a full-featured and beautifully designed GeoGebra applet from John Golden that allows students to practice fitting parameters to a cosine function which models the height of a ferris wheel car above the ground as a function of time. You can watch the ferris wheel spin as the height curve is generated and it provides an endless source of practice since you can always generate a new ferris wheel.
