Recall that when we related the
three basictrigonometric functions
to the
unit circle

Section 1: Basic Trig Equations using the Unit Circle Plates
 Take out your unit circle plates.1.
 
For angles
0 360
o o
 
, find all angles
 
which make the following equation true:
2sin( )2
 
 
[Hint: Think about which coordinate you are looking for on the unit circle plate…]

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?

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?
