# 4.5 and 4.6 Graphs of Trig Functions - Social Circle City ... 4.5 and 4.6 Graphs of Trig Functions Obj: to identify amplitude and period of trig functions and translate them On your graphing calc. Graph y=sin(x) General form of Sine function y = Asin(Bx - C) +D

|A| is the amplitude (how high up) Period of the function is T=2/BB Phase shift (starting point) of the function is C/BB Positive phase shift means its moved to the left Negative phase shift means its moved to the right. D is the vertical shift up or down. Five steps to graph 1. Identify amplitude and period. 2. Find the x values for the five key points

(divide period by 4) 3. Find the values of y for the five key poitns. 4. Connect the 5 key points with a smooth curve and graph one complete cycle. 5. Extend graph to the left and right. Example Graph Y = 4 sin (3x) 1. 2.

3. 4. 5. Identify amplitude and period. Find the x values for the five key points (divide period by 4) Find the values of y for the five key points. Connect the 5 key points with

a smooth curve and graph one complete cycle. Extend graph to the left and right. Example Graph Y = 2 sin (2x-2/B3)+1 1. 2. 3. 4.

5. Identify amplitude, period, phase shift. Find the x values for the five key points (divide period by 4) Find the values of y for the five key points. Connect the 5 key points with a smooth curve and graph one

complete cycle. Extend graph to the left and right. General form of the cosine function y = Acos(Bx - C) + D Cosine graphs look the same as sine graphs but the basic function is p.s. to the right 90 deg. P.S., period, amplitude are found the same way.
