## Module 4 - Topic 1 - Lesson 6 - The Tangent Function

**Essential Question(s):**

What is the tangent function?

What are the characteristics of the tangent function?

**Follow the steps to complete your notes and review the content.**

**STEP 1: Preparation**

__Title__your spiral with the heading above,

__copy__the essential question(s), and draw your border line for the Cornell notes.

**STEP 2: Textbook**

__Answer__the follow questions by using your workbook.

__Read__more than enough to ensure a complete answer to the question.

Following a

__Cornell notes format__, the questions should be written in the left-hand column and with the answers to the right of the question.

Make sure to

__write enough to answer the question__.

***Make sure the completed unit circle on page 93 is in your notes.***

__Activity 6.2__

- How is tangent related to sine and cosine?
- How is the tangent function graph created?
- How does tangent compare to sine and cosine? (cut out or copy the table on page 87)

__Activity 6.3__

- How does vertical dilations or reflection over the x-axis affect the tangent function?
- How does horizontal dilations or reflection over the y-axis affect the tangent function?
- How does a horizontal translation affect the tangent function?
- How does a vertical translation affect the tangent function?

**STEP 3: Mathia**

__Copy__down diagrams, expressions, and other essential work

__from problems that help illustrate the topic(s) covered__.

- Module 5 - Unit: Graphs of Trigonometric Functions

**STEP 4: Self-check**

Perform a self-check after the lesson is completed in class by asking yourself the following question:

*"Can you*

__answer__the essential question(s)__completely__?"- Yes? Awesome job! You took
__effective notes__, and__paid attention__. You are on your way to success! :D - No? Ok. We all have struggles.
__Determine__why you said no, r__evise__your notes and self-check again.__Do not get discouraged__.
