sin graph  

starts at (0,0) goes to (90,1) then down to (180,0) keeps going down to (270,-1) then up to (360,1)

cos graph

starts at (0,1) goes down to (90,0) keeps going down to (180, -1) then up to (270,0) keeps going up to (360,1)

tan graph

starts at (0,0)  then up to whatever tan 89.99999... is. stops at 90. starts again on the minus y axis and crosses the x axis at (180,0) keeps going up. stops at 270  then starts again on the minus y axis and goes to (360,0)

sine graph has two curves starting at -ve

cosine graph has one curve and it starts +ve

And the tan graph has a curved live from 0-89 +ve at 90 their is a dotted line
