Draw graphs of the sine and modulus functions and explain the
Explore the properties of combinations of trig functions in this open investigation.
The sine of an angle is equal to the cosine of its complement. Can
you explain why and does this rule extend beyond angles of 90
Look at the advanced way of viewing sin and cos through their power series.
The family of graphs of x^n + y^n =1 (for even n) includes the
circle. Why do the graphs look more and more square as n increases?
Build up the concept of the Taylor series
What does Pythagoras' Theorem tell you about these angles: 90°, (45+x)° and (45-x)° in a triangle?
Looking at small values of functions. Motivating the existence of
the Taylor expansion.
Shows that Pythagoras for Spherical Triangles reduces to
Pythagoras's Theorem in the plane when the triangles are small
relative to the radius of the sphere.
Can you work out the equations of the trig graphs I used to make my pattern?
