Graphs of sec, cosec and cot

Use the interactive graph below to investigate the properties of the secant, cosecant and cotangent (aka sec, cosec and cot) graphs. In particular, make note of how sec and cosec correspond to cos and sin respectively.

Remember that in an exam situation, you could be asked to sketch any of these graphs or transformations of them (such as f(x)=sec(2x) or similar).
