Calculator Activity: Transformations of Trig Functions (Day 2 of 2)

Unit 8: Cyclical Patterns and Periodic Functions
Lesson 4 of 15

Objective: SWBAT identity the amplitude, period, horizontal shift, and vertical shift in the equation f(x)= a sin(bx +c)+d, and the effect that these parameters have upon the graph of the function.

Big Idea: Students use their calculators to adjust the parameters of trig functions and draw conclusions on how these parameters effect the graph.
