Me: "Hmm...I feel like looking at a free introductory college course for physics cause I don't really understand it."

*finds one*

Free Course: "You've got to know your trigonometry, you've got to know what's a sine and what's a cosine. You cannot say, "I will look it up." Your birthday and social security number is what you look up. Trigonometry functions you know all the time. Okay. I will ask you, and you do. All right. And of course, there's trigonometric identities you know from high school. Pages and pages of them, so no one expects you to know all those identities, but there are a few popular ones we will use."

Trigonometry is easy. SOH-CAH-TOA. The only phrase you ever need to know, SOH = Sine which is the Opposite / Hypotoneuse. CAH = Cosine which is Adjacent / Hypotonouse. TOA = Tan which is Opposite / Adjacent.

Yes im a maths geek, deal with it :ugeek:

Trigonometry is easy as piss, I mastered it for my maths GCSE and this is coming from a guy who got 2% in one of his tests.

Though there may be contributing factors towards that result other than me being bad at maths.
