Adjust the value of the sliders to change the function graphed below. What affect do a, b, c and d have on the graph?
1.) A changes the value inside the brackets. If y=sin(ax) what happens to the following if a is changed from 1 to 2? What happens to the period ? What happens to the range? Does anything else change? 2.) B changes the value outside the brackets. . If y=bsin(x) what happens to the following if b is changed from 1 to 2? What happens to the period ? What happens to the range? Does anything else change? 3.) C is a number added onto x inside the brackets. If y=sin(x+c) what happens to the following if C is changed from 0 to 1? What happens to the period ? What happens to the range? Does anything else change? 4.) D is a number added onto x outside the brackets. If y=sin(x)+d what happens to the following if d is changed from 0 to 1? What happens to the period ? What happens to the range? Does anything else change?
