Precalculus | Packer Collegiate Institute Introducing Three New Trigonometric Functions Recall our three new trigonometric functions are simply the reciprocal of the three functions we know! 1 1 1 csc( ) sec( ) cot( ) sin( ) cos( ) tan( ) (csc stands for cosecant, sec stands for secant, cot stands for cotangent) 1. Find the exact value for the following without a calculator. These are angles in the first quadrant. (a) csc(30o ) (b) cot( / 3) (c) sec(90o ) (d) csc( / 4)

(e) cot(0)

(f) sec(60o )

(g) csc( / 4)

(h) sec( / 6)

2. Find the exact value for the following without a calculator. These are angles in the other quadrants. (i) csc(330o ) (j) cot(5 / 6) (k) sec(3 / 2) (l) csc(7 / 6)

(m) cot(540o )

(n) sec(60o )

(o) csc(3 / 4)

(p) sec(300o )

3. Use your calculator and find the approximate value of each expression, rounded to two decimal places. (q) csc(27o ) (r) cot(1) (s) sec(1o ) (t) csc(5 /13)

(u) cot(233o )

(v) sec(63o )

(w) csc(8 /11)

(x) sec(22o )

4. The point (

5 2 , ) is a point on a unit circle and lies on the terminal side of an angle (see section 3 3 6.1 if you dont know that term). Thus, it carves out an angle of . Find the following:
sin( ) cos( )

tan( ) cot( )

csc( )

sec( )

5. Explain why tan(400 ) tan(140o ) sums to 0 . Hint: Draw a unit circle! Think about coordinates!
