Unformatted text preview: of the Trigonometric Functions In this section, we return to our discussion of the circular functions as functions of real numbers and pick up where we left oﬀ in Sections 10.2.1 and 10.3.1. As usual, we begin our study with the functions f (t) = cos(t) and g (t) = sin(t). 10.5.1 Graphs of the Cosine and Sine Functions From Theorem 10.5 in Section 10.2.1, we know that the domain of f (t) = cos(t) and of g (t) = sin(t) is all real numbers, (−∞, ∞), and the range of both functions is [−1, 1]. The Even / Odd Identities in Theorem 10.12 tell us cos(−t) = cos(t) for all real numbers t and sin(−t) = − sin(t) for all real numbers t. This means f (t) = cos(t) is an even function, while g (t) = sin(t) is an odd function.1 Another important property of these functions is that for coterminal angles α and β , cos(α) = cos(β ) and sin(α) = sin(β ). Said diﬀerently, cos(t + 2π · k ) = cos(t) and sin(t + 2π · k ) = sin(t) for all real numbers t and any integer k . This last property is given a specia...

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
