Default Different ways to remember sin cost tan

In my math class we are dealing with sin cos tan now and we are using the common SOH CAH TOA way to remember it. But our math teacher asked us to be creative and see if we can come up with any other phrases to remember it. I already know another common 1 'some old hippie caught another hippie tripping on acid'. Just wondering if anyone here could help me think of some more creative phrases! XD

I always found SOH CAH TOA easy to remember.

Good luck and let us know what the class comes up with!

I've never used anything to remember it. Tell your teacher you don't need any trick.

tan=sin/cos=opp/adj

That's pretty much it.

Yes, I agree SOH CAH TOA is easiest to remember. That's how I always remember it. There were some funny phrases that people came up with. Though I can't even remember them fully to repeat them on here x.x /hehe

Tell your teacher that when you're 33, you will likely not have used trig for at least 10 years.

ok, kidding, I'm not putting down education. Math is important, and trig is required in many fields of engineering
