Sample text

In quadrant IV, the x-coordinate is positive and the y-coordinate is negative, so the cosine and secant are positive, but the other functions are negative. There is a variety of mnemonic devices to help you remember those signs. All of them refer to the quadrant labels in the figure below. They differ in how they suggest you remember the placement of the letters. You can remember ACTS, starting in quadrant I and moving clockwise, or CAST, if you prefer to move counterclockwise, but you’ll have to start in quadrant IV.

If the radius of the circle is r, the horizontal position of the object varies between r units left of the center and r units right of the center. The vertical position varies between r units below the center and r units above. Imagine a point moving around a circle of radius 2, centered at the origin, and suppose the point begins its movement from (2, 0).

The values of a, b, h, and k change the shape and location of the wave as they did for the sine. The values of a and b concern reflection over the axes and stretching and compression. The values of h and k tell you how to translate the graph. Shifting, stretching, compressing, and reflecting The graph of y = a sin (b (θ − h )) + k is determined by four numbers, a, b, h, and k, in the equation. The numbers h and k tell how the wave is translated from the position of the parent, with h indicating the horizontal translation and k the vertical shift.
