Engage your students in the modeling process by exploring data that represents the motion of a cycloid. We will demonstrate how to capture the data from a video and illustrate the geometric underpinnings that verify the model. Data will be shared in various formats along with a GeoGebra file that connects the algebraic and geometric concepts.
