This program follows up on the ideas and problems presented in Mechanics in Action by using an amusement park ride to model circular motion. The aim is to introduce and develop the idea of mathematical modeling and show how real-world problems can be solved by a modeling process. Beginning with a review of circular motion, the assumptions that must be made to simplify the problem and set up the circular motion model are examined in a classroom. Analysis is carried out through the use of computer graphics. The result is a thorough solution of the original problem. More suggestions are provided for teachers on further circular motion problems.
