(Chapter 1: Review) 1.39 PART C: GRAPHS OF THE SIX BASIC TRIG FUNCTIONS • These functions are periodic, so their graphs can be decomposed into cycles that repeat like wallpaper patterns. The period for tan and cot is ± ; it is 2 for the others. • A vertical asymptote (VA) is a vertical line that a graph approaches. (This idea will be made more precise in Calculus.) VAs in the graph of a basic trig function correspond to exclusions from the domain. They are graphed as dashed lines.
