Between 180◦ and 360◦ ) are all negative, going to a minimum of −1 for sin 270◦ , and returning to 0 for sine 360◦ . The brain remembers pictures better than equations or words; so commit the graph on the opposite page to memory; and this would prove to be extremely valuable in solving trig problems. This graph is well-known in Math as “the sinusoidal curve” or the “sine curve”, for short. A quick sketch of the sinusoidal curve (done in 10 seconds) will provide a good guide for ensuring that the correct values of sine in the different quadrants are obtained.

While these functions were extremely useful before calculators and computers were available, they have fallen into disuse in modern times except for purposes of “examinations”, to test the student’s versatility. ∗ Have Fun! ∗ There are no simple sum and difference formulas for tan!
