Graphs of Sine and Cosine Functions

Learning Objectives

  • Find amplitudes, periods, and any phase shifts (horizontal translations) of given sine or cosine functions
  • Use transformations to graph functions involving sine and cosine
  • Graph trigonometric functions that have amplitudes other than one (vertically stretched or compressed)
  • Graph trigonometric functions that have stretched or compressed periods
  • Write equations of graphed trigonometric functions
