In this assignment, I will be exploring the following concepts:
1. y = sin x
2. y = a sin x
3. y = sin bx
4. y = sin (x+c)
5. y = sin x + d
We can make the following important observations.
The amplitude of the graph is 1
The period of the graph is 2pi or 360 degrees.
The graph goes through the origin
The turning points and the x-intercepts happen every 90 degrees.
The amplitudes of the graphs are a
The periods of the graphs are 2pi or 360 degrees.
The graphs go through the origin
The turning points and the x-intercepts happen every 90 degrees
The amplitude of the graphs are all 1
The periods of the graph are 360 degrees / b
The turning points and the x-intercepts happen every period / 4 degrees
The periods of the graph are 360 degrees
The graphs are moved c degrees vertically
The graphs are moved d units horizontally
