Presentation Transcript

The unit circle is a circle of radius 1 centered at the origin of the xy-plane. Its equation is x2 +y2 = 1.

• A terminal point is the point where the terminal side of the angle intersects the unit circle.

• Coordinates are (x, y) or :

Given a distance, t, along the unit circle starting from (0, 1) and going counterclockwise (if t is positive) we arrive at a point, P(x, y), called the terminal point.
