The unit circle is a circle whose radius is 1 and whose center is at the origin. Since r = 1: s r = θ becomes s = θ
(0, 1) (-1, 0) (0, -1) (1, 0) s = θ θ y x

Let θ be an angle in standard position and let P = ( a , b ) be the point on the unit circle that lies on the terminal side of θ . The sine function associates with θ the y -coordinate of P and is denoted by b = θ sin The cosine function associates with θ the x -coordinate of P and is denoted by a = cos
The tangent function is denoted by tan θ and it is defined as 0 , tan = a a b θ The cotangent function is denoted by cot θ and it is defined as 0 , cot = b b a
