Lesson Plan: Amplitude and Period of Trigonometric Functions
This lesson plan includes the objectives, prerequisites, and exclusions of the lesson teaching students how to find the amplitude and the period of sine, cosine, and tangent functions.
Students will be able to
- find the amplitude and period of trigonometric functions by looking at their graphs,
- find the amplitude and period of trigonometric functions by looking at their defining equations.
Students should already be familiar with
- the functions sine, cosine, and tangent.
Students will not cover
- graphing trigonometric functions.
