Sinusoidal Graphs

This assignment was created by Cindy Kroon of Montrose High School, Montrose, South Dakota. It uses the associated "Grapher" applet to enhance students understanding of sinusoidal graphs and their transformations.
Course: Trigonometry

Grapher allows the user to enter a function of a single variable with up to three parameters, then vary the parameter... see more



Ability to graph a basic sinusoidal function, i.e. f(x) = sin(x)


Sinusoidal graphs and their transformations.

Learning Objectives

Students will be able to describe characteristics of sinusoidal functions and their graphs, and use the language of mathematics to express mathematical ideas precisely.
