## Lesson - Reciprocal Functions

**Essential Question(s):**

Explain the characteristics of the reciprocal functions.

How are the reciprocal functions similar to their counterparts?

**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__.

__Secant__

- Sketch the parent secant function with key characteristics.
- What is the domain, range, period, x-intercepts, y-intercepts, max and min of secant?
- Graphically, when is do the discontinuities occur in secant with respect to cosine?

__Cosecant__

- Sketch the parent cosecant function with key characteristics.
- What is the domain, range, period, x-intercepts, y-intercepts, max and min of cosecant?
- Graphically, when is do the discontinuities occur in cosecant with respect to sine?

__Cotangent__

- Sketch the parent cotangent function with key characteristics.
- What is the domain, range, period, x-intercepts, y-intercepts, max and min of cotangent?
- Graphically, when is do the discontinuities occur in cotangent with respect to tangent?
- What ratio is cotangent equal to?

**STEP 3: Mathia Spiral**

__Copy__down diagrams, expressions, and other essential work

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

- none

**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__.
