Section 7.3
Today's objectives:
1. Convert an angle from degrees to radians and vice versa.
2. Interpret the radian measure of the central angle of a circle of radius r as the number of radius lengths, r, that you need to wrap around the rim of the circle on the arc spanned by the angle.
3. Understand the relationship between arc length, radius and an angle measure in radians.
If given two of the arc length s, radius r, or an angle θ, find the third.
 The radian measure of an angle θ is the number of radius lengths that a bug would walk on the rim of a circle spanned by the angle. For a circle of radius r, if s is the arc length the bug walks on the rim, then we have s = (the radius r) x (# of radius lengths) or s =  r x θ Here is a short video of the bug taking a tour around the rim of a circle, counting radius lengths as he goes. It is a silent movie since bugs can't talk.
 Suppose a central angle θ  in a circle of radius r spans an arc of length s. Measure how many radius lengths that the length of the arc is.  This number of radius lengths is the radian measure of the angle θ: we have rθ = s.

Mon, Sept. 9 Section 7.4
Graphs of the Sine and Cosine (and Outside Changes to the Formula)
Today:  QUIZ 2 over 7.1 and 7.2
We explored the graph of y = Asin(x) + k (Outside additive and multiplicative changes)

Today's objectives:
1. Solve simple trig equations over a requested interval; for example on the interval [0, 2π) find θ if sin θ = 1/2, providing exact values of angles measured in radians when they are multiples of π/6, π /4, or π /3. Be aware of when more than one solution exists! Be able to sketch the angle or angles.
2. Know the main characteristics (period, amplitude, midline, domain, range, odd/even symmetry, when it is positive, negative, increasing, decreasing, if it starts at or above the midline) of the graph of y = sin θ, and y = cos θ. Relate this to the unit circle as the x-coordinate (cosine) or the y-coordinate (sine) of the point on the circle.
3. For y = Asin(x) + k or y = Acos(x) + k , identify the period, amplitude, and midline.

We discussed the domain, range, period, and amplitude of y = sin(x) and y = cos(x) and how these can be determined from the unit circle.
We looked at an outside change to the function, which results in the original function being transformed vertically (change to the output).

1. y = Asin(x) and y = Acos(x) have amplitude |A|.
For A > 0
the graph of y = Asin(x) vertically stretches or compresses the graph of  y = sin(x) by A units.
the graph of y = Asin(x) is a vertical reflection of the graph of y = Asin(x).
Similarly for y = cos(x).

2. y = sin(x) + k and y = cos(x) + k have midline k.
For k > 0
the graph of y = sin(x) + k vertically shifts the graph of y = sin(x) up k units.
the graph of y = sin(x) k vertically shifts the graph of y = sin(x) down k units.
Similarly for y = cos(x).

The first multiplies the output by a quantity; the second adds/subtracts a quantity to the output.

Section 7.5
The graph of
y
= sin(Bx)
(Inside multiplicative change)

For the function y = AsinBx + k
we explored the effects of  B on the period to find that,
for positive values of B, this graph has a period of 2π/B, an amplitude of  |A|, and midline which is y = k.

Today's objectives:
1. Report the period of the graph of y = AsinBx + k.
2. If you have found the period, p, of  y = sinBx, check that your value is correct by substituting into the formula and verifying that B·p = 2π.
3. Given a graph, report the midline, amplitude and period and use them to find the formula y = AsinBx + k or y = AcosBx + k.

The graph of
y
= Asin(B(x−h))

Today:  Continued Section 7.5. If given a graph, find the midline, period, amplitude, and the horizontal and phase shifts. When specifying horizontal and phase shift, include whether it is regular sine or cosine (or upside down versions of these), whether it is shifted left or right, and by how much.

Today's objectives:
1. Given a graph and a model choice (regular or upside down sine or cosine) report the phase shift.
2. Given a graph with a nonzero phase shift φ or horizontal shift h, find a formula y = Asin(B(x−h))+ k or y = Asin(Bx−φ) + k.
3. If you have found the phase shift, φ, of the graph of y =sin(Bx−φ), check that your value is correct by multiplying out y =sin(B(x−h))
and verifying that B·h = φ, where h is the horizontal shift.
