can sumone think of an easier way to graph trig functions in the forms(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

(a)(sin(bx-c)

(a)(cos(bx-c)

(a)(tan(bx-c)

(a)(cot(bx-c)

(a)(sec(bx-c)

(a)(csc(bx-c)

I was wondering if sumone could explain what each part represents, like what does (a) does if i increase it, decrease it, make it negative, what b and c represent (i mean represent on the graph, does it stretch it shrink it, flip it make curves. Ive missed a few days of school so i couldnt get the notes. Id also like to know how big the periods should be, how do i find asymtotes, range, domain. Anything to help me understand it would help greatly.
