Sequel



How many times do you have to pedal to go a mile? How does that compare to walking the mile?





What does a position / time graph look like with all four dots plotted simultaneously?

Will D ever travel with (i.e. coincide for a period of time) with B and C?



How many turns does the wheel make (spot A) in the time between when B and D match up and when they match up again?















How many times does A rotate in one minute? How many times does B rotate in one minute? Do B and C rotate the same amount of times/minute



What is the proportion between number of tire rotations (A) and dots B, C, and D?



Is there a relationship between the distance traveled for each full cycle of each dot?
