The General Cosecant Function
- A B Cron
The cosecant function is the reciprocal of the sine function. The sine function can be shown by selecting the check box. One of the distinct features of the cosecant is the asymptotes which you can switch off with the check box.
The red dashed line is the basic cosecant function. One period is always highlighted. The blue line is the cosecant in general form. This applet can be used by teachers in a demonstration mode in the classroom or teachers can have students load it on their own computers with a worksheet to be complete for a grade.
