Now why is their relationship a reciprocal one? I see as Sine gets smaller, Cosecant (and Cotangent) get larger. Is there a website that specifically describes why the changing of one causes a change in the other one (outside of the obvious). I drew pictures of them, so I can visually see the change, but I don't understand why the numbers change the way they do.

Does that make sense?
