40S Applied Math Mr. Knight – Killarney School Slide 1 Unit: Sinusoids Lesson: SIN-L1 Sinusoidal Functions Sinusoidal Functions Learning Outcome B-4 SIN-L1 Objectives: To study periodic and sinusoidal functions.

40S Applied Math Mr. Knight – Killarney School Slide 2 Unit: Sinusoids Lesson: SIN-L1 Sinusoidal Functions There were 8.32 hours of daylight in Winnipeg on January 7 th, 2000. Would you expect this to be any different on January 7 th, 2001 or January 7 th, 2005? The answer would be no. The reason is that the number of hours of daylight on any given day in a specific place will be approximately the same every year. If you were to draw a graph of the number of hours of daylight for a period of about three years, the graph would be similar to the one shown below. The y-axis represents the number of daylight hours and the x-axis represents the days of the year from January 1 st, 2000 at x = 1, to December 31 st, 2000 at x = 365, and so on. Intro - About Periodic Functions

40S Applied Math Mr. Knight – Killarney School Slide 3 Unit: Sinusoids Lesson: SIN-L1 Sinusoidal Functions This information or data will be different for each place in the world, but it will remain repetitive for any given place over the years. This is an example of a function (number of daylight hours over time) that is called Periodic. Other examples of periodic functions are the amount of air in your lungs over time the average daily temperatures during the year. In this module you will study functions that are periodic, and some of the properties and applications of one special type of periodic function. You will use computer software such as Graphmatica and Curve Expert to draw and analyze periodic functions. Intro - About Periodic Functions (cont’d)

Theory – Introduction to Periodic Functions

40S Applied Math Mr. Knight – Killarney School Slide 8 Unit: Sinusoids Lesson: SIN-L1 Sinusoidal Functions In each case, the graph shows a relation of some event over time. If the relation has similar patterns that are repeated at regular intervals (such as #1 and #3), then the relation is defined as periodic, and the length of the repeating interval is called a period. Data are usually easier to recognize as periodic or not periodic when represented in graphical form. For this reason, we will normally draw a graph of any data that may involve a periodic relation.

40S Applied Math Mr. Knight – Killarney School Slide 13 Unit: Sinusoids Lesson: SIN-L1 Sinusoidal Functions Introduction to the Sine Function Investigation We now want to investigate a special kind of periodic function in a circle. We will study the relationship between the measure of angle AOC (identified with a red arc) and the length of segment CD (also in red) in a diagram similar to the one shown below, for numerous positions of C as we rotate C around the circle in a counterclockwise direction.

40S Applied Math Mr. Knight – Killarney School Slide 18 Unit: Sinusoids Lesson: SIN-L1 Sinusoidal Functions Theory – The Sinusoidal Function The graph from the investigation on the previous page should look similar to the one shown below. If point C were moved around the circle a second time, the angle measures would be from 360° to 720°, and the segment lengths would remain the same, and the shape of the graph would be repeated, as shown below. A graph with a wave-like appearance - like the one shown above - represents a special kind of function called a sinusoidal function, or sine function.

40S Applied Math Mr. Knight – Killarney School Slide 19 Unit: Sinusoids Lesson: SIN-L1 Sinusoidal Functions Theory – Characteristics of the Sinusoidal Function The graph below shows a typical sinusoidal function. In this case, the x- axis is the median line of the sinusoidal function. The median line is sometimes called the axis of the sine function, and is a horizontal line midway between the maximum and minimum values of the sine curve.

40S Applied Math Mr. Knight – Killarney School Slide 20 Unit: Sinusoids Lesson: SIN-L1 Sinusoidal Functions Theory – Characteristics of the Sinusoidal Function (cont’d) The amplitude is the maximum displacement of the curve from the median line. The amplitude in our investigation was approximately 5 cm.
