# Ch 17: Trigonometric Graphs

Use these lessons to find out what the graphs of trigonometric functions look like. Get better test scores, memorize related formulas, earn CE credits, or simply refer to this chapter if you need guidance with trigonometry homework questions.

## Trigonometric Graphs - Chapter Summary

As you develop a better understanding of trigonometric functions, you will start to recognize the methods used for shifting, stretching, and shrinking trigonometric graphs. These lessons identify all of the major trigonometric graphing procedures, and they also point out the trigonometry vocabulary words you will need to understand. Each brief lesson within the chapter focuses on one major topic at a time. You can review the lessons in order, or you can skip around, depending on your study needs. Our instructors provide ample illustrations and sample problems to help you verify trigonometric identities and solve trigonometric equations. This chapter is designed to teach you how to:

• Describe graphing cosine and sine transformations
• Identify vertical shift, phase shift, period, and amplitude
• Analyze graphing cotangent, secant, and cosecant functions
• Define the trigonometric identity through using graphs
• Examine how to use graphs to solve trigonometric equations
