Monday, September 12, 2016 Trigonometry 1.5: Four Additional Circular Functions: Tanget, Secant, Cosecant, and Cotangent Functions - Tangent: tan X = sin X/cos X • ^ produces: tangent functions : {(x, tan x)} - Reciprocal Functions • SECANT: sec x = 1/cos x — produces: secant function : {(x, sec x)} • COSECANT: csc x = 1/sin x — produces: cosecant function : {(x, csc x)} • COTANGENT: cot x = cos x/ sin x — produces: cotangent function : {(x, cot x)} - E = is an element of… [can be] - Z = intergers (+/-) • K E Z FUNCTIONS DOMAIN RANGE {(x, tan x)} x doesn’t = pi/2 +k(pi) all real numbers {(x, sec x)} x doesn’t = pi/2 +k(pi) | sec x | >/= 1 {(x, csc x)} x doesn't = k(pi) | csc x | >/= 1 {(x, cot x)} x doesn't = k(pi) all real numbers x cos x sin x tan x sec x csc x cot x 0 1 0 0 1 undefined undefined pi/6 sqrt 3/2 1/2 1/sqrt3 2/sqrt3 2 sqrt3 1 1 pi/4 1/sqrt2 1/sqrt2 sqrt2 sqrt2 pi/3 1/2 sqrt3/2 sqrt3 2 2/sqrt3 1/sqrt3 pi/2 0 1 undefined undefined 1 0 pi -1 0 0 -1 undefined undefined 1 Monday, September 12, 2016 x cos x sin x tan x sec x csc x cot x 3pi/2 0 -1 undefined undefined -1 0 1.6: Negative Identities and Periods for the Circular Functions - Negative Identities [x E all real numbers in the domain of the function] • cos(-x)= cos x • sin(-x)= -sin x • tan(-x)= -tan x • sec(-x)= sec x • csc(-x)= -csc x • cot(-x)= -cot x - Period Function [f(x)] • f = period function - simple harmonic motion • a point on a pendulum that is swinging back and forth, or the bobbing up and down of a weight attached to a spring, repeats the movement in equal intervals of time • is periodic 2.1: Graphs of the Sine and Cosine Functions - Sine Function • wave: the connection of the points with a smooth continuous curve to produce the graph of the sine function a more precise way of saying ^ is a sinusoidal wave • repeats every 2pi • over one period is called a cycle • 2 Monday, September 12, 2016 • the endpoints are the critical points • the x-intercepts referred to as zeros or roots • y=sin x is called amplitude - amplitude = .5 |max y-coord. - min y-coord| x 0 pi/6 pi/4 pi/3 pi/2 3pi/4 pi 5pi/4 3pi/2 7pi/4 2pi sin x 0 1/2 1/sqrt2 sqrt3/2 1 1/sqrt2 0 -1/ -1 -1/ 0 sqrt2 sqrt2 - Cosine Function x 0 pi/6 pi/4 pi/3 pi/2 3pi/4 pi 5pi/4 3pi/2 7pi/4 2pi cos x 1 sqrt3/2 1/sqrt2 1/2 0 -1/ -1 -1/ 0 1/sqrt2 1 sqrt2 sqrt2 - Important Characteristics of Graphs (y=sin x & y= cos x) • common - sinusoidal waves with period 2pi • amplitude = .5 |1-(-1)| = 1 • each cycle has 4 identically shaped arc sections - intervals along x-axis are 1/4 • endpoints of the four arcs are critical points • different y = sin x y = cos x for 0 </= x </= 2pi, first arc is increasing, the for 0 </= x </= 2pi, first two arcs are decreasing next two arcs are decreasing, and the last arc and the next two arcs are increasing is increasing. y int = (0,0) y int = (0,1) x int: x = kpi x int: x = (pi/2) + kph symmetric with respect to the origin symmetric with respect to the y-axis - call each graph pure form 3 Monday, September 12, 2016 - vertical stretch: multiplying the funct. by a real number greater than 1 or less than -1 - vertical shrink: multiplying the funct. by a nonzero real number between -1 & 1 Amplitude of Sinusoidal Wave in the Form y = A cos x and y = A sin x - |A| = amplitude - |A| > 1 produces a vertical stretch - |A| < 1 produces vertical shrink - A < 0 produces a reflection across the x-axis Graphing Calculator/ CAS - Mode: Radian - Window: [example] • Xmin: 0 Xmax: 4pi Xscl: pi/2 • Ymin: -6 Ymax: 6 - Then input your function Characteristics - continuous periodic waves - four identically shaped arcs for each cycle with critical points at each end - the x-intercepts and symmetry - amplitude or reflection changes to the maximum and minimum functional values SINUSOIDAL FUNCTIONS Function Domain Range X-intercepts Amp.
