Chapter one
GRAPHS OF
TRIGONOMETRIC FUNCTIONS
Introducing the Topic
In this chapter, you and your students will learn how to graph trigonometric
functions on the Sharp EL-9600. Graphing trigonometric functions on the
calculator is covered first, so that graphical evaluation of trigonometric
functions may be covered in the next chapter. The trigonometric functions
are often introduced as circular functions with angle measurement in degrees
and radians. The sine and cosine functions are said to map the angle
measurement to the y and x coordinates respectively, of the point on the unit
circle representing the angle. Then, the four additional trigonometric functions
are defined in terms of sine and cosine.
If you let the angle measurement be represented by a horizontal axis (x) and let
the vertical axis (y) represent the function evaluated at the angle, then you can
graph the six trigonometric functions as y = sin x, y = cos x, y = tan x, y = csc x,
y = sec x, and y = cot x.

For Discussion
You and your students can use the calculator to discuss:
(1) intervals where the functions increase and decrease,
(2) domain and range of the functions,
(3) the periodicity of the functions, and
(4) which part of the horizontal axis represents each quadrant.
The trace feature will allow you to move along the curve to see where the
function is increasing and decreasing, to see the values associated with limits
on the domain and range, to see the period of a function, and to explore the
quadrant "markers" on the x-axis.

Chapter four
AMPLITUDE, PERIOD,
AND PHASE SHIFT
Introduction
In this chapter, you and your students will learn how to modify trigonometric
functions by constants. If you multiply sine or cosine by a constant A, then
every value of the function is multiplied by A. The maximum absolute value of
the sine or cosine function is 1. Therefore, Asin θ and Acos θ will have a
maximum value of |A|. The value of |A| is called the amplitude of the functions
y = Asin x and y = Acos x, and is the distance sine and cosine rises and falls
above the x-axis. Multiplication of the function by A will stretch or shrink the
curve vertically. |A| > 1 will stretch the curve while an |A| between 0 and 1
will shrink the curve. The tangent function does not have an amplitude because
π
tangent increases without bound as θ approaches values such as 2 .
If we multiply the argument θ by a constant k within a trigonometric function,
then every measure of an angle θ is multiplied by k. Multiplication of θ will
stretch or shrink the curve horizontally. A value of k > 1 will shrink the curve
while a value of k between 0 and 1 will stretch the curve. The stretching and
shrinking of a curve horizontally effects the function's period. The new periods
π
2π
will be
for sine, cosine, secant and cosecant, and k for tangent and cotangent.
k
14
Amplitude, Period, and Phase Shift/TRIGONOMETRY USING THE SHARP EL-9600
If we add a constant c to the argument θ within a trigonometric function, then
every measure of an angle θ is increased by c. Addition of c will shift the
function left or right. A c > 0 will shift the function to the left while a c < 0 will
shift the function to the right.
If we combine both the multiplication by a constant k and the addition of a
constant c to the argument θ (sin (kθ + c)), then the movement of the function
left or right with respect to the period change is called the phase shift. The
-c
c
value for this shift is . A c > 0 will shift the function
units to the left while a
k

c
c < 0 will shift the function
units to the right.

and a changed function for Y2. Use the trace feature to verify the new period.

INVERSE TRIGONOMETRIC
FUNCTIONS
Introducing the Topic
In this chapter, you and your students will learn how to compute and graph
inverse trigonometric functions. The inverse is found by interchanging the
range and domain of the trigonometric function. Thus, the domain of the
trigonometric function becomes the range of the inverse and the range of the
trigonometric function becomes the domain of the inverse.
For example, the sine function has IR as its domain and -1 ≤ y ≤ 1 as its range.
Therefore, the inverse of the sine function (arcsine or inverse sine) will have
-1 ≤ x ≤ 1 as its domain and IR as its range. Notice, like some algebraic functions,
the inverse of trigonometric function will not be a function. This is due to
periodicity of the trigonometric function's domain extends to the inverse's
range. Thus, one value in the inverse's domain will correspond to more than
one value in the inverse's range. To make the inverse a function, you will limit
the domain of the trigonometric function so it forms a one-to-one function.
Limit the domain of the sine and tangent functions to -π/2 ≤ x ≤ π/2, and limit the
cosine function to 0 ≤ x ≤ π . These limited domains result in one-to-one functions
whose inverses are functions. The values within these limited domains are called
the principal values. Notations for "inverse sine" are "arcsin" and "sin–1 ".
Inverse Trigonometric Functions/TRIGONOMETRY USING THE SHARP EL-9600

When asked to mentally find arcsin (1), you will typically ask yourself the
question: "Sine of what angle (within the principal values) will give me 1?"
The calculator does this computation very quickly for you.
When graphing an inverse function by hand, you would swap the limited domain
and the complete range values of the trigonometric function to form the inverse
function. Once again, the calculator does this swap quickly for you.

SOLVING TRIGONOMETRIC
EQUATIONS
Introducing the Topic
In this chapter, you and your students will learn how to solve trigonometric
equations graphically. A trigonometric equation is an equation involving a
trigonometric function. Usually, trigonometric equations are solved for the principal values for each function. These values are -π/2 ≤ x ≤ π/2 for sine and tangent,
and 0 ≤ x ≤ π for cosine. The other solutions will then be the integral multiples of
the function's period. Some trigonometric equations will have no solutions.
To solve an equation graphically, you will graph the left side of the equation as
Y1 and the right side as Y2. In the case where the right side of the equation is
zero, you will graph the left side as Y1 and solve for the intercepts. The point(s)
of intersection will be the solutions to the equation.

LAW OF SINES AND
LAW OF COSINES
Introducing the Topic
Chapter 7 considered techniques of finding the solution to problems involving
right triangles. This chapter explores using the calculator with the Law of Sines
and Law of Cosines. These two laws relate the angles and lengths of the sides
of any triangle and have been used for many centuries in solving practical
problems such as those that occur in map making, navigation, and surveying.
Calculator Operations
Before using the calculator to solve problems in this chapter, set the calculator
to operate in degrees by pressing 2ndF
touching 1 Deg. Press 2ndF
SET UP , touching B DRG, and double
QUIT to exit the set up screen.
The Law of Sines states that the ratio of the lengths of the sides of a triangle to
each other is the same as the ratio of the sines of the angles opposite the sides.
That is, if A, B, and C are the measures of the three angles of a triangle and X, Y,
(
and Z are respectively the lengths of the three sides opposite those angles, then:

You may see values other than zero.

Consider the triangle shown on the right.
What is the value of y? What is the value of z?
A=95°

B=48°
x = 15
With the blinking cursor over the A, type in 95 and press ENTER .

Next type 15 for x, the length of the side opposite the 95°, and press ENTER .
Enter 48 for B in the same manner. Solve for y by positioning the blinking cursor
over the y and press 2ndF
EXE . The y turns out to be about 11.19.
Use the fact that the sum of the angles in any triangle is 180° to find 37° as the
measure of the angle opposite side z. You can now apply methods in Chapter 7
to edit the current equation to one involving a known side and side z, say
sin A = sin C , or you can work with the current equation using B = 37 and
X
Z
y = z. In either case, you should find z = 9.06.
This problem could also be solved using the Graphic Solver. Press 2ndF
SOLVER , touch A METHOD, double touch 3 Graphic to choose the Graphic
Solver. Enter the known quantities for the first part of this example: angle A
measures 95°, side x is of length 15, and angle B measures 48°. (To start the
problem from the beginning, enter 0 for y). Use ▼
to position the cursor over
the unknown quantity, y. To begin the solution process press 2ndF
EXE and
you will see:
You must enter the range values for the unknown (from BEGIN to END) within
which you expect to find the solution. Let the BEGIN = 5 by pressing 5
ENTER .
Enter a value for END that you do not expect y to exceed, say 25, by pressing
2
5
ENTER . Press 2ndF
EXE and an autoscaled plot will be drawn
showing graphs of the left and right sides of the current equation.
The calculator will now display a blinking box in the upper right-hand corner of
the viewing screen while it looks for the intersection of the two graphs. If one is
found, the solution is displayed at the bottom of the screen.

Law of Sines and Law of Cosines/TRIGONOMETRY USING THE SHARP EL-9600
Consider another example. Suppose the length of the side of a triangle opposite
a 65° angle is 4 and another side is of length 12.
Find the measure of the angle opposite the side of length 12. Press CL to view
the variable list. Enter A = 65, x = 4, and y = 12. Position the cursor on B and
press 2ndF
EXE to solve for the unknown angle. Since any angle of a triangle
is between 0° and 180°, enter these values for BEGIN and END.
Press 2ndF
EXE and you will see that the graphs of the left- and right-hand
A
sides of the equation sin = sin B do not intersect.
x
y
The message “No solution” in window is then displayed at the bottom of the
screen. If you get this message when using the Graphic Solver, you should
enter another BEGIN and/or END within which the Graphic Solver will search
for solutions. In this case, however, you have included from BEGIN to END all
possible values for the measure of angle B. Thus, there is no triangle that could
have the indicated measures.
You can algebraically confirm this fact by noticing that sin B = (Y sin A)/X= 3 sin
65° = 2.719 >1 which is of course, impossible.
The Law of Cosines is helpful in solving problems when the lengths of two sides
and the angle between those sides is known or when the lengths of all three sides
are known. This law says that the square of the length of any one side of a
triangle equals the sum of the squares of the lengths of the other two sides minus
twice the product of the lengths of the other two sides and the cosine of the
angle between those sides. That is, if x, y, and z are the lengths of the three sides
of a triangle and θ is the angle between the two sides of lengths x and y, then:
z2 = x2 + y2 – 2xy cos θ

Suppose you are given a triangle in which two sides of lengths 13 cm and 8 cm
enclose a 50° angle. Find the length of the third side of the triangle.
To find the solution using the Law of Cosines, press ENTER to view the list of
variables: Z, X, Y, and θ. Press ▼ to position the cursor on X and enter 13.
Next, enter 8 for Y and 50 for θ. Press ▲ to move the cursor over Z and press
0
ENTER . Press 2ndF
EXE to solve for Z. Notice that the Equation Solver
has automatically changed to the Newton Solver.
The calculator has chosen this method of solution since the equation is such
that a simple rearrangement of the variables will not produce a value for the
unknown. The Newton method uses iterations to approximate the root of the
equation. You should supply an initial estimate of the solution in the START
position (0 is the default value) and a step size STEP (.001 is the default value)
that the SOLVER uses to determine successive estimates.
Press 2ndF
38
EXE to find the solution.
Law of Sines and Law of Cosines/TRIGONOMETRY USING THE SHARP EL-9600
(If you receive an error message while using the Newton Solver, set the START
value at your estimate of the solution and try slightly increasing the STEP
value.) The method is continued until the left side and right side of the equation
are within a defined tolerance.
Since the left and right sides of the equation are displayed as equal values, and
the L – R = 0, the NEWTON SOLVER has found a solution that is correct to the
limits of the calculator’s accuracy.
Method of Teaching
Use Blackline Master 8.1 to create an overhead or handout for using the Graphic
Solver with the Law of Sines. Use Blackline Master 8.2 to create an overhead or
handout for using the Newton Solver with the Law of Cosines. Demonstrate the
procedure to store each of these equations in the calculator memory for later recall.
Next, use Blackline Master 8.3 to create a worksheet for the students. Remind
them that some problems may be solved by a variety of methods. If information
is not available to obtain a good estimate of START in the Newton Solver,
students may find it more convenient to work with the Graphic Solver.
Use the topics For Discussion to supplement the worksheets. Retrieving
(loading) and renaming equations that have been stored in the calculator
is discussed in the owner's manual.

Using Blackline Master 8.3
The problems discussed in the Calculator Operations section are presented on
Blackline Masters 8.1 and 8.2. Problem 1 on Blackline Master 8.3 involves the
angles of elevation of the sun. Remind students that the angle of elevation is
the angle, measured upward from the horizontal, to the line of sight of an object.
The Graphic Solver provides an added exploration when finding the solution to
this problem. In the variable list for the Law of Sines, enter 60 for A, 50 for X,
and 40 for Y. Solve for B using BEGIN= 0 and END= 180 to obtain B = 43.85°.
Notice, however, that two intersections are visible. Press 2ndF
CALC and
the Graphic Solver will find the other intersection at B =136.15°. Have students
discuss why this is not a possible value for B. Once B is found,
90 – θ = 180 – (60 + 43.85) = 76.15 yielding θ = 13.85°.
For Discussion
Students can discuss how to retrieve and rename the stored equations for the
Law of Sines and the Law of Cosines.

QUIT to exit the set up screen.
Depending on the information given in the problem situation, there are three
formulas you can use to find the area of any triangle:
1. The area of a triangle is one-half the product of the base and the height
where the height is the length of the line segment drawn from a vertex of
the triangle perpendicular to the opposite side called the base.

Method of Teaching
Use Blackline Master 9.1 to create an overhead or handout for using the SOLVER
in applications with areas of triangles. Remind the students to store each of the
formulas under a name of their choice before deleting the current formula and
entering a new one. Next, use Blackline Masters 9.2, 9.3, and 9.4 to create worksheets for the students. Encourage different methods of solution and use of
both the Equation solver and Graphic solver. Use the topics For Discussion
to supplement the worksheets.
Using Blackline Master 9.2
The second problem presented under the CALCULATOR OPERATIONS section,
also provides a nice exercise with the Graphic solver. Press 2ndF

touch A METHOD, and double touch 3 Graphic to choose the Graphic solver.
To start the problem from the beginning, set A to 0. Move the cursor to the A
variable and press 2ndF
EXE to see the Graphic solver variable range screen.
Recall that the Graphic solver searches for the intersection of the left and right
hand sides of your equation from BEGIN to END.
Since area is always nonnegative, 0 could be used for BEGIN. Enter END a value
that you do not expect area to exceed, say 25. (A little bit of estimation helps
here! If your value for END is too small, increase it and try again.)

A ALPHA = 2ndF √
ALPHA S ( ALPHA S – ALPHA X ) (

AREA OF A CIRCULAR SECTOR
Introducing the Topic
Let’s explore one of the many uses for angles measured in radians, and that is
determining the area of a sector of a circle.
Calculator Operations
Before using the calculator to solve problems in this chapter, set the calculator
to operate in radians by pressing 2ndF
touching 2 Rad. Press 2ndF
SET UP , touching B DRG, and double
QUIT to exit the set up screen.
A portion of a curve is called an arc.
When the curve is a circle, a central angle
is an angle whose vertex is at the
center of the circle. The central angle
is said to intercept, or subtend, the arc.
Area of a Circular Sector/TRIGONOMETRY USING THE SHARP EL-9600
47
The portion of the circle and its interior that is formed by the two radii
enclosing a central angle and an arc is called a sector of the circle. The formula
for the area of a circular sector in terms of the radius r of the circle and the
1
central angle θ, measured in radians, is area = r 2θ.

Method of Teaching
Use Blackline Masters 10.1 and 10.2 to create overheads or handouts for using
the SOLVER in applications with the area of a circular sector. Demonstrate the
steps to prepare the calculator for use with the SOLVER, and emphasize the fact
that the central angle in the formula for the area of a sector of a circle must be
in radians, not degrees. Encourage students to give units with all answers.
Next, use Blackline Master 10.3 to create a worksheet for finding the area of a
circular sector. Encourage students to explore all three techniques (Equation,
Newton, and Graphic) available in the SOLVER so they will have experience
with other methods if the one they are attempting to use fails. Use the topics
For Discussion provided to supplement the worksheets.
Using Blackline Master 10.2
