Lesson: 2.6 Graphs of Tan and Cot Functions
Goal: Graph Tan and Cot Functions DOD
Let's look at the graphs of the two functions (xscale is , yscale is 1) Period: Two Consecutive
Vertical Asymptotes: Solve: Vertical Stretch/Shrink
Ch_2 Page 1 Solve: Vertical Shift
Horizontal Shift
___________________________________
Examples
Determine the period, phase shift, and vertical shift, if any, of each function.
Describe any vertical stretching or shrinking. Also, list the xvalues for two
consecutive asymptotes. How affects the graph (unknown yscale) Ch_2 Page 2 We will:
• first place the vertical asymptotes
• then apply the value from the center line.
• Draw our appropriate shape
