Definition. The unit circle is the circle of radius 1 centered at the origin in the -plane.

Its equation is 2 + 2 = 1.

that the point satisfies the equation of the unit circle, that is, 2 + 2 = 1.)

Suppose is a real number. Lets mark off a distance along the unit circle, starting at

the point (1,0) and moving in a counterclockwise direction if is positive or in a clockwise

direction if is negative.

In this we arrive at a point (, ) on the unit circle. The point (, ) obtained in this

way is called the terminal point determined by the real number .

(1,0) and moves counterclockwise all the way around the unit circle and returns to (1,0),

it travels a distance of 2. To move halfway around the circle, it travels a distance of ___. To

move a quarter of the distance around the circle, it travels a distance of ___. Where does the

point end up when it travels these distances along the circle?

Definition. Let be a real number. The reference number associated with is the

shortest distance along the unit circle between the terminal point determined by and the axis.

Remark. Since the reference number is a distance, it is always nonzero (zero or positive).

To find the terminal point determined by any value of , we use the following steps:

1. Determine which quadrant contains . Write the signs of its coordinates. If it is in 1, write

(+___, +___); 2, write (___, +___); 3, write (___, ___); 4, write (+___, ___).

2. Find the terminal point (, ) determined by .

3. Get the values of and , neglect their signs, then plug them in the appropriate

Remark. In finding the terminal point for very large , we express as a sum of a

multiple of and some other real number c. The terminal point of is the same as

that of c.

functions of real numbers?

Recall. We previously defined the trigonometric functions of an acute angle in a

right triangle in terms of the lengths of the sides of the right triangle. Note that in a unit circle, the

coordinates of the terminal point of a real number form a right triangle inside the unit circle.

It is easy to see that the length of the side opposite to is the -coordinate of and that

the length of the side adjacent to is the -coordinate of . Thus, the sine and cosine of a real

number is the -coordinate and -coordinate of its terminal point in the unit circle.

Remark. Note that a distance 2 on the unit circle also means an angle of 360. We define

another unit for measuring angles, called the radian, as 2 radians = 360 or equivalently,

radians = 180.
