ABSTRACT
The article provides information about the "Pasta Project," a mathematical activity created to orient studens on graphing trigonometric functions. The activity is considered as an ideal way to graph trigonometric functions before any formal trigonometry education. It aims to provide hands-on experiences in which students create the sine and cosine functions by themselves. It is also developed to enable student to explore the shapes of functions whose domain is any angle and range. Moreover, the activity gives an actual view of the trigonometric functions. Procedures and materials used for this activity are offered.
