• #### tricks to help u memorize sum mathematical terms ajacob2013

i hope some of u will fin this useful

SIN, COS and TAN: if u dont know when or where to use these, then this will help u.

think of "CAH SOH TOA".

CAH stands for Cos=Adjacent over Hypotenuse

SOH stands for Sin=Opposite over Hypotenuse

TOA stands for Tan=Opposite over Adjacent

if u r unsure of knowing what kind of a line on a graph is positive or negative, thn this might help u: these are two lines going different directions-\ /

this line / looks like a fada in irish and is therefore positive

this line \ looks like hitler's salute and so it is negative.

i really do hope this works for u and if anyone else has more helpful tips pls share them.

thank u

I use, Sin: Oh Hell Cos: Another Hour Tan: Of Algebra. The capital letters stand for Opposite, Adjacent, Hypotenuse. It works for me

Two old angels (Tan = o/a) sitting on high (Sin=o/h) chatting about heaven (Cos = a/h)

Till old age

S=O/H

C=A/H

T=O/A

CRAPPY (cos)

TRIG. (Tan)
