Copyright © 2014, 2010, 2007 Pearson Education, Inc. 2 The Unit Circle A unit circle is a circle of radius 1, with its center at the origin of a rectangular coordinate system. The equation of this circle is Copyright © 2014, 2010, 2007 Pearson Education, Inc. 3 The Unit Circle (continued) In a unit circle, the radian measure of the central angle is equal to the length of the intercepted arc. Both are given by the same real number t.

Be sure to set the mode to degrees or radians, depending on the function that you are evaluating. You may consult the manual for your calculator for specific directions for evaluating trigonometric functions.
