Consider the unit circle…

Recall that each central angle measure corresponds to a *terminal point*, expressed as x- and y-coordinates. For example, the terminal point of 270° is (0,-1). Define a function that models this relationship and graph it in degrees. Then graph it in radians.

After you’ve drawn your graphs, check out the applets here. Are any of them demonstrating the function that you just graphed? What’s the name of that function?
