In this trigonometry lesson, the instructor reviews graphing y = cos(x/3) and y = 2sin(pi*x/3), as well as stating their respective periods and amplitudes. The lesson also includes solutions to a review for a trigonometry test. The period of y = cos(x/3) is found by dividing 2pi by the coefficient of x, while the amplitude is simply the absolute value of the coefficient. For y = 2sin(pi*x/3), the period is calculated by dividing the period of sine (2pi) by the coefficient of x, while the amplitude is the absolute value of 2. Overall, the lesson provides a comprehensive review of these important trigonometric concepts.
