A clockwise motion is one that proceeds 'like the clock's hands': from the top to the right, then down and then to the left, and back to the top. In a mathematical sense, a circle defined parametrically in a positive Cartesian plane by the equations x = sin t and y = cos t is traced clockwise as t increases in value. The opposite sense of rotation is counterclockwise (U.S. and Canada) or anti-clockwise (UK & Aus).
