OBJECTIVE 5: Understanding the Graphs of the Cosecant and Secant Functions and Their Properties

Rewrite

y = csc x as

y =1sin x

and use knowledge of the graph of the sine function to graph the cosecant

function.

For

f (x) = csc x ,

• The domain is ___________________ • The range is _____________________(interval notation) • The function is periodic with a period of P = ________________. • The function has infinitely many vertical asymptotes with equations ___________________ • The function obtains a relative maximum at ________________ where n is a _____________

o The relative maximum value is ________________ • The function obtains a relative minimum at ________________ where n is a _____________

o The relative minimum value is ________________ • The function is __________ (odd or even or neither), which means

csc(−x) =__________. The graph is symmetric about ______________________.

Draw a set of axes. Determine appropriate tic marks for x and y, plot points, dash and label vertical asymptotes (where

sin x = 0) and sketch the graph of

f (x) = csc x .

Rewrite

y = sec x as

y =1

cosx and use knowledge of the graph of the cosine function to graph the secant

function.

For

f (x) = sec x ,

• The domain is ___________________ • The range is _____________________(interval notation) • The function is periodic with a period of P = ________________. • The function has infinitely many vertical asymptotes with equations ___________________ • The function obtains a relative maximum at ________________ where n is a _____________

o The relative maximum value is ________________ • The function obtains a relative minimum at ________________ where n is a _____________

o The relative minimum value is ________________ • The function is __________ (odd or even or neither), which means

sec(−x) =__________. The graph is symmetric about ______________________.

Draw a set of axes. Determine appropriate tic marks for x and y, plot points, dash and label vertical asymptotes (where

cos x = 0) and sketch the graph of

f (x) = sec x .

To sketch functions of the form ( )cscy A Bx C D= − + and ( )secy A Bx C D= − + , first sketch the

graph of the corresponding reciprocal function.

Steps for Sketching Functions of the Form ( )cscy A Bx C D= − + and ( )secy A Bx C D= − +

Step 1: Lightly sketch at least two cycles of the corresponding reciprocal function using the process outlined in Section 7.2. If 0≠D , lightly sketch two reciprocal functions, one with 0=D and one with 0≠D .

Step 2: Sketch the vertical asymptotes. The vertical asymptotes will correspond to the x-intercepts of the

reciprocal function ( )sin= −y A Bx C or ( )cos= −y A Bx C .

Step 3: Plot all maximum and minimum points on the graph of ( )sin= − +y A Bx C D or

( )cos= − +y A Bx C D .

Step 4: Draw smooth curves through each point from Step 3, making sure to approach the vertical asymptotes.

In the examples below, determine the equations of the vertical asymptotes and all relative maximum and relative minimum points of two cycles of each function and then sketch its graph.
