Is the Sine a Circular Function? How about a Star Sine?

CC_BY-NC-SA

Students are often challenged by seeing the conncection between the unit circle and the graph of the sine and cosine functions. This activity is designed to take students out of their comfort zone to experience what the "sine" function would look like if it were based upon other geometric figures.
