You'll learn it some day in Highschool algebra.

Full cycle is value of PI * 2. Cos is similar to sin but with offset.
Together sin & cos can be used to receive projections of rotation. If you multiply results of sin and cos by some value - you will get coordinates of point moving around zero coordinates at specified distance.
Sin & cos make more sense in geometry but in case of maps you can think of them in simpler way.

Forgot how I did it and deleted the actual map, but with sin and cos I was able to make a graph like this.
