FIRST: 1. What is the value of when a=1? What is the value of ? 2. What is the value of when a=3.1415? What is the value of ? 3. What is the value of when a=8? What is the value of ? NEXT: On the tab to the left of the graph, there is a point Q listed there that follows the graph of . Click on the circle next to point P to make it visible. Then right click on Q and select "Trace On". As you adjust the slider, what does the resulting graph look like? - Is the tangent graph even or odd? Why does this make sense? - What are the asymptotes of this graph? Why would those be asymptotes? - What else do you notice about this graph? How does it compare to the graph of secant?
