Investigating Sin and Cos

Published on 06/09/2008

Activity Overview

Students will create sliders in TI-InterActive!™ to investigate how the variables A, B, C, and D shift and/or transform the graphs of sin(x) and cos(x).

Before the Activity

It would help if students have prior knowledge of how these variables have impacted other functions although this activity may be done without any prior knowledge of transformations of functions.

During the Activity

This activity has all of the directions provided for students to create the sliders and view the transformations. There are also questions in the activity for students to complete as they perform the activity.

After the Activity

Discuss answers to activity questions.
