About This Chapter

Are you ready for questions about trigonometric graphs on the NMTA Mathematics test (which is now the NES Mathematics test)? Our expert instructors have created video lessons and quizzes to help you review the essentials of this topic so you'll be prepared on test day.

NMTA Math: Trigonometric Graphs - Chapter Summary

New Mexico State has replaced the NTMA math test with the NES Mathematics test. We can help you prepare for this exam if you're feeling a little rusty on trigonometric graphs or you just want to convince yourself you're adequately prepared. Our expert instructors love to teach so you'll find their video lessons succinct, thorough, relevant and enjoyable. The videos are very user-friendly and are short enough to fit into breaks throughout your busy day. In them you'll review things like:

  • Creating graphs of sine and cosine transformations
  • Graphing tangent function in terms of amplitude, period, phase shift and vertical shift
  • Determining trigonometric identity using graphs
  • Graphically solving trigonometric equations

Be sure not to skip over the quiz after each lesson. These will help you identify weak areas or boost your confidence in your preparation. If you need additional help or clarification, you can always contact one of our expert instructors or re-watch videos.
