Lesson Plan: Graphing Periodic Functions Mathematics
This lesson plan includes the objectives and prerequisites of the lesson teaching students how to graph periodic functions and use key terminology, including frequency, period, and amplitude.
Students will be able to
- find the midline, period, frequency, amplitude, maxima, and minima of periodic functions,
- plot graphs of periodic functions given their defining equations.
Students should already be familiar with
- the functions sine, cosine, and tangent,
- the amplitude and period of periodic functions.
