Graphing the Sine Function on the Coordinate Plane

Characteristics of the Sine & Cosine Functions Period :2π Domain:The set of all real numbers (−∞, ∞) Range:[−1, 1] Function Type: Sine (Odd) Cosine (Even) The period of a function is the amount of time or length of a complete cycle. In other words, how long until the graph starts repeating. For the sine and cosine functions, the period is the same. Remember: Even Functions are symmetric about the y-axis, Odd Functions are symmetric about the origin (shown below).

Example #1  State all values of t for which sin(t) = 1. Remember that sine, the y- coordinate, is 1 at 90°. Any angle coterminal with that is also a solution. (1,0) (0,1) (0,-1) (-1,0)0°, 360° 90° 180° 270°

Example #2  State all the values of t for which cos(t) = Remember that cosine, the x-coordinate, is -½ at 120° and 240°. Any angle coterminal with those are also a solutions. (1,0) (0,1) (0,-1) (-1,0)0°, 360° 90° 180° 270°

Graphing the Tangent Function on the Coordinate Plane

Characteristics of the Tangent Function Period:π Domain:All real numbers except odd multiples of Range:All real numbers (−∞, ∞) Function Type: Odd

Example #3  State all values of t for which tan(t) = 1. Tangent is 1 where sine and cosine values are the same. This occurs at 45° and 225°. The cycle is shorter for tangent though, so to specify all solutions we only need to add 180° to our original solution.

Basic Transformations of Sine, Cosine, & Tangent  Vertical Stretches Vertical stretches or compressions by a factor of “a”.  Reflections Reflections over the x-axis.  Vertical Shifts Vertical shifting of “b” units.

Example #4  List the transformation(s) and sketch the graph. Vertical stretch by a factor of 2.

Example #5  List the transformation(s) and sketch the graph. Vertical compression by a factor of 1/3 and x- axis reflection.

Example #6  List the transformation(s) and sketch the graph. Vertical shift of four units down.
