 Mysterious Mathematical Monkeys This blog is for Miss Jovanovich's algebra and geometry classes to share ideas, ask questions, and reflect on what skills and topics we are studying. If we are lucky, we might even get a chance to connect with other students studying the same stuff.

SOH, CAH, TOA? What are these words?? What do they mean?!
Well, they are ways to remember the sine, cosine, and tangent rules. To get the Sine of an angle you have to divide its Opposite side length by the Hypotenuse side length, SOH. Sine = Opp/Hyp. To get the Cosine of an angle you have to divide its Adjacent side length (not the hypotenuse) by the Hypotenuse, CAH. Cosine = Adj/Hyp. To get the Tangent of an angle, you divide its Opposite side length by its Adjacent (not the hypotenuse) side length, TOA. Tangent = Adj/Opp.
Well, this is what we learned about in class this week. I'll blog next week about more! See you in 7 days!
