Using a graphing calculator: MODE must be in radians

#### Explanation:

Using a graphing calculator: MODE must be in radians.

On a TI graphing calculator, with the standard zoom, $Y 1 = \sin \left(x\right)$:

graph{sin(x) [-10.04, 9.96, -5.16, 4.84]}

On a TI graphing calculator, with the standard zoom, $Y 1 = \cos \left(x\right)$:

graph{cosx [-10.04, 9.96, -5.16, 4.84]}

On a TI graphing calculator, with the standard zoom, $Y 1 = \tan \left(x\right)$:

graph{tan x [-10.04, 9.96, -5.16, 4.84]}

On a TI graphing calculator, with the standard zoom, $y = \sec \left(x\right) : Y 1 = \frac{1}{\cos \left(x\right)}$:

graph{1/(cos x) [-10.04, 9.96, -5.16, 4.84]}

On a TI graphing calculator, with the standard zoom, $y = \csc \left(x\right) : Y 1 = \frac{1}{\sin \left(x\right)}$:

graph{1/(sin x) [-10.04, 9.96, -5.16, 4.84]}

On a TI graphing calculator, with the standard zoom, $y = \cot \left(x\right) : Y 1 = \frac{1}{\tan \left(x\right)}$:

graph{1/(tan x) [-10.04, 9.96, -5.16, 4.84]}
