Question: How can a hamster oscillate the wheel in which it runs?

The worksheet below animates a hamster running back and forth on a linear floor within a wheel. Its motion is such that the wheel remains stationary.

What math would describe the hamster running back and forth such that the wheel oscillates with a constant frequency and the floor's vertical angle oscillates between plus and minus an angle greater than zero and less than 2 Pi?
