2 Tuesday, Jan. 21 Took QUIZ 1 over prerequisites.
Chapter 6 Tools
Do:
6.3 -- 1 through 28, 30-32, 34-42
 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.

Due Thursday, Jan. 23, 11:59 pm: E-HW 0 General Course Information and Using eHW.
Due Tuesday, Feb. 4, 11:59 pm: E-HW 1 Sections 6.1-6.3
Due Thursday, Jan. 30 - Writing Assignment 1: Bug on a Square Track

Section 6.4
Do: Chapter 6 Tools
-- 1-10, 19-23, 28, 31 and Section 6.4 10-15 and Ch 6 Review 35, 36 (for practice)

Due Thursday, Jan. 23, 11:59 pm: E-HW 0 General Course Information and Using eHW.
Due Tuesday, Feb. 4, 11:59 pm: E-HW 1 Sections 6.1-6.3
Due Thursday, Jan. 30 - Writing Assignment 1: Bug on a Square Track

3
3 Tuesday, Jan. 28 Handout: Unit circle with exact values
We worked
some problems from Writing Assignment 2 on finding angles in radians (exactly).
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).
(See Section 5.2 and 5.3 for a review of these topics.)

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).
(See Section 5.1 for a review of these topics.)

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

Due for Thursday, Jan. 30
Do: Section 6.4 -- 1-26 (for practice)

3 Thursday, Jan. 30

Today: QUIZ 2 on Section 6.1 and 6.2

For the function y = AsinBx + k or y = AcosBx + k

for positive values of B, this graph has a period of  2π/B, an amplitude of  |A|, and midline which is y = k.
