## Lesson goal: Graphically adding $\sin^2+\cos^2$

Previous: Test the famous sin/cos identity | Home | Next: Make cool polar plots

Here is a graphical version that proves that $\sin^2(x)+\cos^2(x)=1$. We did a textual version of this in a past lesson. This one allows you to really see the behavior of the sine vs the cosine and see how they add after each is squared.
