2 | Friday, September 4 | Today: QUIZ 2 over 7.1 and
7.2 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).
The first multiplies the output by a quantity; the second adds/subtracts a quantity to the output.

For
the function y = AtanBx we explored the effects of B on the period to find that, for positive values of B, this graph has a period of π/B and a vertical stretch/compression of |A|. Its vertical asymptotes are found by solving the equation Bx = ±π/2, ±3π/2, ±5π/2, ... Its zeros are found by solving the equation Bx = 0, ±π, ±2π, ±3π, ... Midway between a zero and an asymptote the graph has y-coordinate A. Read: Section 7.7 Do: Section 7.6 -- 1-20, 23-36 Wednesday: QUIZ 4
