o

(b)

tan(4 /3)

(c)

cos(90 )

o

(d)

sin(7 /4)

2.

Recall that when we related the

three basictrigonometric functions

to the

unit circle

, we sawthe connection that for an angle of

:

sin() _______) ______tan(___cos() ________

Section 1: Basic Trig Equations using the Unit Circle Plates

Take out your unit circle plates.1.

For angles

Answer(s):

Section 2: Basic Trig Equations without the Unit Circle Plates

Put away your unit circle plates.1. For the equation

1sin( )2

there are

two

values of

(for

0 360

o o

) that will make this equationtrue.What quadrants are thetwo angles in? How do youknow?What is the

reference angle

(the angle made to the x-axis) for these values?What are the

two

values of

that make theequation true?2. For the equation

tan( ) 1

there are

two

values of

(for

0 2

) that will make this equation true.What quadrants are thetwo angles in? How do youknow?What is the

reference angle

(the angle made to the x-axis) for these values?What are the

two

values of

that make theequation true?3. For the equation

cos( )

(where

0 360

o o

), what is the only value which can go into box whichyields only

one

solution for

? How do you know this equation has only one solution?

3

4. For the equation

cos( )

(where

0 360

o o

), provide a value which can go into box which yields

no

solutions for

? (Hint: There are an infinite number of values that can go into the box! Just find one!) How doyou know this equation has no solutions?

Section 3: Basic Trig Equations without Angle Restrictions

1. For the first question in the previous section, we stated that there were two values for

which made theequation true, if we restricted the angle

(where

0 360

o o

). However, if we do not make thatrestriction for

, there are an

infinite

number of values for

which make the equation true.(a) First, list four additional solutions.(b) Second, can you come up with a general way to represent

all

of the solutions?2. For the second question in the previous section, we stated that there were two values for

which madethe equation true, if we restricted the angle

(where

0 2

). However, if we do not make thatrestriction for

, there are an

infinite

number of values for

which make the equation true.(a) First, list four additional solutions.(b) Second, can you come up with a general way to represent

all

of the solutions?3. For the equation

cos( ) 1

, without any restrictions on the angle

, can you find a way to represent

all

of the solutions?
