Unit 5, Activity 8, Library of Functions - The Sine Function and The Cosine Function Blackline Masters, Advanced Math-Pre-Calculus Page Comprehensive Curriculum, Revised 2008 176 1. You are to create two entries for your Library of Functions. Introduce the parent functions f( x ) = sin x and f( x ) = cos x . Include a table and graph of each of the functions. Give a general description of each function written in paragraph form. Your description should include (a) the domain and range (b) local and global characteristics of the function – look at your glossary list and choose the words that best describe this function. Include a paragraph that compares and contrasts the two functions. 2. Give some examples of family members using translation, reflection, and dilation in the coordinate plane. Show these examples symbolically, graphically, and numerically.

Unformatted text preview: Explain what has been done to the parent function to find each of the examples you give. 3. What are the common characteristics of two functions? How do they differ? 4. Find a real-life example of how these function families can be used. Can either function be used to describe the real-life example you have chosen? Would one be better than the other? Why? Be sure to show a representative equation, table, and graph. Does the domain and range differ from that of the parent function? If so, why? Describe what the maximum, minimum, y-intercept, and zero or zeroes mean within the context of your example. 5. Be sure that 9 your paragraph contains complete sentences with proper grammar and punctuation 9 your graphs are properly labeled, scaled and drawn 9 you have used the correct math symbols and language in describing these functions...
