Now that you have learned how to graph the sine and cosine functions, Professor Burger asks the question ""How does changing the x-value affect the graph?"" He shows you how adding or subtracting to the x-value can actually change graphs of the sine and cosine functions, a process called translation. Professor Burger also warns you about classic mistake #8, reminding you that adding and subtracting to the x-value actually creates the opposite effect when graphed (adding to X moves the graph in the negative direction). Finally, Professor Burger shows you how to simplify the equation y = 3sin(x + Pi/2) using translation. The key lies in the fact that adding or subtracting pi/2 or 2*pi to a sine or cosine function means there are some shortcuts that you can take to determine what the graph of the function looks like (e.g. the graph of sine of (x+pi/2) is the same as the graph of cosine and the same as the graph of sine of (x+2*pi)).
Taught by Professor Edward Burger, this lesson was selected from a broader, comprehensive course, Precalculus.....
