Worksheet titled Trig Graph Worksheet is here.  Equations for #1-6 are at the end of the document.  Graphs can be found using Desmos.

Worksheet titled Vertical Shifts and Phase Shifts is here.  Answers are here.

Here's some help
1.  Identities - There are many ways of doing many of these.  You might find these helpful

  • Verifying Trig Identities - Part 1;   Part 2 
  • Another Verifying Trig Identities - Here
2.  Trig Graphs - Different teachers mean different procedures.  Still, these may help.

1.  Quiz on Trig Identities - here is the full packet of identities (with 1 possible solution).
2.  Use the trig table to plot the sine function.  Use the radian angle measure at the x-coordinate and the sine value as the y-coordinate.  Here is the start of it.  Notice I found a decimal approximation for the sine values and plotted them.  Once you are finished plotting the points, connect them with a smooth continuous curve.

Congratulations on successfully completing Precalculus.  I know it wasn't always an easy journey, but I hope you learned a whole lot along the way.  I felt your pain when you struggled as much as I felt the joy when you succeeded.  As you finish this phase of life and get ready to begin the next stage, WB will miss you.  When I graduated back in 1993 from WB, I never looked back.  I put WBHS behind me and kept moving forward.  Little did I know (in fact, I never imagined), that 9 years later I would be walking back through these doors to teach a new generation.  I will miss you all and hope that you come find me - you may have to look hard in the new building - when you come back home.  **sniff...sniff** I need to stop now.
