Learn how the graphs of y=sin(θ), y=cos(θ), and y=tan(θ) look, using the unit circle definition of the functions.

Learn about very important features of sinusoidal functions: the amplitude and the midline. Learn how they relate to the extremum points of the function.

Learn how to find the amplitude and the midline of the graph of a sinusoidal function from its formula. For example, find the amplitude and the midline of f(x)=3*sin(2x-1)+5.

Learn about the period of sinusoidal functions: how it relates to extremum points and the midline, and how to find it from the formula of the function. For example, find the period of f(x)=3*sin(2x-1)+5.
