As point time moves along the horizontal segment and point D moves around the circle, the point Sin traces out the sine of Angle DAC.
To see this, click the Animate button.
Point D'' is the image of point D rotated 90 degrees. Point Cos traces out the cosine of Angle DAC.
Click the X button in bottom right corner to erase the traces.
