elcome to a complete tour of a helix.

As part of a Calculus III project, we went to a parking garage in downtown St. Louis, Missouri right across the street from Busch Stadium where the Cardinals play. The parking garage there has a helix shaped ramp connecting all of the levels.

This tour will show you step-by-step how we found the equations of the ramp's helix.
