Identify the effect on the graph of replacing f(x) by f(x) + k, k f(x), f(kx), and f(x + k) for specific values of k (both positive and negative); find the value of k given the graphs. Experiment with cases and illustrate an explanation of the effects on the graph using technology. Include recognizing even and odd functions from their graphs and algebraic expressions for them.
Explain how the unit circle in the coordinate plane enables the extension of trigonometric functions to all real numbers, interpreted as radian measures of angles traversed counterclockwise around the unit circle.
(+) Use special triangles to determine geometrically the values of sine, cosine, tangent for π/3, π/4 and π/6, and use the unit circle to express the values of sine, cosines, and tangent for x, π + x, and 2π – x in terms of their values for x, where x is any real number.
Look for and express regularity in repeated reasoning.
Common Mistakes on Group Quiz
Today, I would like to spend some time at the start of class reviewing the Group Quiz that my students took earlier in the unit. I will just review the common mistakes made and take any questions from students. This might also be a good time for a Favorite No activity.
Students should spend this period working through their Trigonometric Functions Review and asking any questions they have about the materials on tomorrow's test.
