10-3 The Unit Circle
A unit circle is a circle with a radius of 1 unit.
For every point P(x, y) on the unit circle, the value of
r is 1.

Why the unit circle?
• We use the unit circle to help us evaluate
any trigonometric function.
• Ex. sin 60° =
• Ex. cos Π/2 =

• Take a few moments to go to this website
and explore the unit circle.
• Write down any interesting things you
notice about the sine, cosine, and tangent
values as you change the angle.

Creating/ completing the unit
circle
We will keep in mind 2 things
1. The unit circle is symmetric in many
ways (reference angles)
2. The quadrant helps us to find out which
is positive and which is negative.
