By Murray Bourne, 05 Oct 2009
I recently tweeted the following (on Twitter, of course):
Tip for remembering sin, cos and tan: Some Old Hags Can’t Always Hide Their Old Age (sin = Opp/Hyp, cos = Adj/Hyp, tan = Opp/Adj)
There were several replies which I thought you may enjoy (some are a bit racey and not very politically correct – you’ve been warned):
From CardsChic: Oh Heck (sine) Another Hour (cos) Of Algebra (tan)
From sumidiot: From one of my students: Can A Hooker Take Off A Set Of Handcuffs?
From wmcneary: Some Old Hippy Caught Another Hippy Trippin’ On Acid
From tea_robot: “Saints On High Can Always Have Tea Or Alcohol” is what I was taught!
From LunaticNeko: My Tip: Open a “Book of Trigonometry Problems” or something, then drill through from beginning to end. You’ll remember it fast! ^ ^
From chris_1974: “Sex On Highways Causes Awful Havoc To Our Automobiles” is one a class once created!
