The Trigonometric Functions

Recapping for evaluating the six trigonometric
functions for any given angle.




If the given angle does not lie between 0 and 2, find its
simplest positve coterminal angle and use that value.
Identify the quadrant the terminal side for the given angle lies.
Determine the coordinates on the unit circle for the given
angle.
Follow the definitions for the six trigonometric functions.
Even and Odd Trig Functions

What is an even function?

An even function is when one substitutes a negative value into
the original function and the outcome is the same as its
positive value.
f (- x) = f (x)
Ex. f (x) = x2
f (2) = 22 = 4
f (-2) = (-2)2 =4
Therefore, f (-2) = f (2) and f (x) = x2 is an even
function.
Even and Odd Trig Functions

What is an odd function?

An odd function is when one substitutes a negative value into the
original function and the outcome is the opposite of its positive value.
f (- x) = - f (x)
Ex. f (x) = x3
f (2) = 23 = 8
f (-2) = (-2)3 = - 8
Therefore, f (-2) = - f (2) and f (x) = x3 is an odd function.
Even and Odd Functions

Let’s determine whether or not the sine function is even or odd.
 f(x) = sin x



What is the sin 30? ½
What is the sin (- 30)? sin (- 30) = - sin (30)
sin (- 30) = -( ½ ) = - ½
½
Because the sin (- 30) = - sin (30), the sine function is odd.
sin (-x) = - sin x
Even and Odd Trig Functions

Lets determine whether the cosine function is even or odd.
 f (x) = cos x



What is the cos 60? ½
What is the cos (- 60)? ½
cos (- 60) = cos 60
cos (- 60) = ½
Because the cos (- 60) equals cos 60, cosine is an even function
cos (- x) = cos x
