I had a Math Happening! I was in Las Vegas for INNOV8 and was fascinated by the High Roller Ride! Each of the pods can hold up to 40 people!!! How fun!

Be a Problem Poser!

PROBLEM POSING: What questions come to mind? What do you wonder about?

a) If it moves 1 foot per second, how many feet in a minute? How long would my ride be?

b) If I knew the diameter, I could find the Circumference.

If I found the circumference, I can find how long it would take to make 1 full revolution…
