In this chapter, we will investigate graphs of sine, cosine, and other trigonometric functions.
- 6.0: Prelude to Periodic Functions
- Each day, the sun rises in an easterly direction, approaches some maximum height relative to the celestial equator, and sets in a westerly direction. The pattern of the sun’s motion throughout the course of a year is a periodic function. Creating a visual representation of a periodic function in the form of a graph can help us analyze the properties of the function.
- 6.1: Graphs of the Sine and Cosine Functions
- In the chapter on Trigonometric Functions, we examined trigonometric functions such as the sine function. In this section, we will interpret and create graphs of sine and cosine functions
- 6.2: Graphs of the Other Trigonometric Functions
- This section addresses the graphing of the Tangent, Cosecant, Secant, and Cotangent curves.
