How are the sin and csc graphs similar?

You know what the graph of y = sin(x) looks like. That's just a wave. The graph of y = csc(x) has asymptotes at x = 0, π, 2π, 3π, etc. In between each of these partitions, the curve of the csc(x) comes from above if the sin(x) curve is above the x-axis and from below if it's below the x-axis, touching the curve at y=1 or y =-1.
