Today: Special Angles 

Tuesday, Jan. 26  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).
The first multiplies the output by a quantity; the second
adds/subtracts a quantity to the output. 

Thursday, Jan. 28  For
the function y = AsinBx + k
or y = AcosBx + k For Tuesday, Feb 2 

Tuesday, Feb. 2  Today: QUIZ 3 over
7.3 and Chapter 7 Skills Refresher 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. Little is it known that Groundhog Day stems from Candlemas, a European feast which marks a special point between the Winter Solstice and the Vernal Equinox. If Daylight Hours vs. Time were modeled as an inverted cosine graph but over an interval of [0, 2π], then today would roughly correspond to π/6!
