## Graphs of Sine and Cosine Functions

Section 4.5

### Create the sine and cosine Graphs

Creating the Graphs

### sine and cosine graphs

Sine graph plotted

Cosine graph plotted

### Does the graph repeat?When?

One complete cycle of the cosine and sine graphs is called the ___period___

### Key Points

What did you find???

Key Points

What are key points? What do they mean?

### Review – Graphing sine and cosine

• Where do they graphs come from?!?

• Graphing Sine and Cosine – Review

• graphing sine and cosine - radians

### Listing the Key Points

Sinx:(0°,0) (90°, 1) (180°,0) (270°, -1) (360°, 0)

Cosx:(0°,1) (90°,0) (180°, -1) (270°, 0) (360°, -1)

### Transformations to the parent graphs – sine and cosine

• We will see how transformations affect the basic sine and cosine parent graphs

### General Equations:

• y = asin(bx – c) + d

• y = acos(bx – c) + d

### Vertical Translations

• A vertical shift is the vertical distance between the midline of the graph and the x –axis.

• For y = sinx +d and y = cosx +d, the constant d causes a vertical shift in the graph

• Which value (x or y) is influenced by the change in the “d” value?

### What’s Happening??

Transformations of Sine and Cosine

### Vertical Translations

• The shift is d units upward for d >0

• The shift is d units downward for d< 0

• The graph oscillates about line y = d instead of x-axis

• Does the period change when “d” changes?

### Amplitude

• The amplitude of y = asinx and y = acosx represents the vertical distance between the midline and the maximum or minimum

• Amplitude = |a|

• The constant factor “a” is a scaling factor - a vertical stretch or shrink of the basic sine and cosine curves

### What’s Happening??

Transformations of Sine and Cosine

### Amplitude…What Does It Do??

• If a ≥ 1, the basic sine curve is stretched vertically

• If a ≤ -1, the basic sine curve is reflected across the x-axis and vertically stretched

• The graph of y = asinx ranges between -a and a instead of between -1 and 1

### Amplitude…What Does It Do??

• If 0 <a < 1, the basic sine curve is vertically shrunk

• If -1< a < 0, the basic sine curve is reflected across the x-axis and vertically shrunk

• The graph of y = asinx ranges between -a and a instead of between -1 and 1
