Anyone who votes this down should automatically be banned from amirite for failure to finish 8th grade.
What the hell are you smoking i'm in 10th grade and i've never heard of this in my life.Ever thought that in other countries they don't teach this?
well then other countries FAIL.
Please don't be american...
Well saying that other countries fail...kind part of the american stereotype
not really...? I don't know many americans who say that and actually mean it.
I was just kidding. Meanie D: </3
Of course you don't know many americans who say that it's a stereotype it's usually not true but still pretty funny.
I was kidding also and i'm not a meanie :(.
Ok I'm sorry :( <333 have some interbrownies. There's nothing in them or anything cough
To help with your problem H stands for Sine equals Opposite over Hypotenuse.
CAH stands for Cosine equals Adjacent over Hypotenuse.
TOA stands for Tangent equals Opposite over Adjacent.
I learned ''Tommy On A Ship Of His Caught A Heron''.
i'm australian and i learnt it
I have no clue what it stands for either. I'm in the tenth grade two!
@747661 (Anonymous): well you obviously shouldn't be if your'e in tenth grade two
Sorry, typo. *Too. Oh yeah it's you're not your'e. Maybe you should check your own grammar before you talk about someone else's.
my mistake was a simple one
Yours was one we learnt in year 2
It's not like I don't know the difference, I made a simple mistake JUST LIKE YOU. If you really would like to get picky with grammar, then "my" should be capitalized, there should be a period after "one" and "2" should be spelled out and a period should finish the sentence. Pretty sure I learned how to use periods in at least grade one.
why does 2 have to be spelled out?
Because you spelt out one. In English, there is supposed to be balance, it's supposed to be one or the other. Look, this is getting stupid and I'm done if you are. Agreed?
Yeah I'm just bored.
I'm pretty sure you don't say "My mistake was a simple 1".
Yeah enough now (Find a mistake in that :P).
So my Geometry teacher put on an Indian hat when she told us about the volcano of SOHCAHTOA....
hahaha my physics teacher made us drum our desks as he enlightened us with the legend of SOHCAHTOA...
mine too! but she was also crazy and made us call her indian sohcahtoa for the rest of class.
that's kinda funny
Some. Old. Hippie. Came. A. Hoppin'. Through. Our. Apartment.
I have a trigonemtry test tomorrow. Thank for reminding me that I need to study :P
If anyone asks, you were multitasking.
We learned it as : some old hippie caught another hippie tripping on acid
And just cause I'm younger doesn't mean I can't have opinions.
But it does mean you're not supposed to have an account. Just sayin'.
But I still can though...
Hahaha I could go all "social contract" on ya but I'll leave that for political science class.
What are you talking about? I'm 16. I know what SOHCAHTOA is used for, that's just the way they taught it to us so we would remember how it was spelled.
No you don't. I'm 14 and no, I didn't lie about my age, so unless there was some kind of glitch, maybe YOU need to learn something.
http://www.amirite.net/rules Look at rule 4.
no one reads the rules like ever there just...there
But I'm still right, and you're still wrong, regardless of if anyone reads the rules.
rules are made to be broken
that's how are dumbass TA told us to remember it haha
Yeah, in science our "assistant teacher" or whatever taught us that. It's pretty stupid, but I still remember it at least haha
Silly Old Hitler Couldn't Advance His Troops Over America :D I love my teacher
Sex On Hard Concrete Always Hurts The Other's Arse.
What's SOCAHTOA? (7th grader, didn't learn this yet xD)
sin of an angle = opposite side/hypothenuse, cos of an angle = adjacent side/hypothenuse, tan of an angle = opposite/adjacent
Therefore, s = o/h, c = a/h, t = o/a
After my friends and I learned this, we marched around her neighborhood yelling, "SOHCAHTOA SOHCAHTOA" pretending it was some sacred chant. When I saw this, I about screamed.
hahah sacred chant
This device is so helpful!
Why didn't anyone teach me this? It would have made geometry so much easier!
One of the funniest maths classes I've ever had was about SOHCAHTOA. Go you! :)
I learned this in algebra in 7th grade... that was a hilarious math class. What was even better though was when we were learning about SSS, SAS, AAS, and ASA congruence postulates, cause people kept talking about the ASS postulate by accident.
The fact that the SSA triangle postulate spells a "bad" word is how I remembered that it is a "bad" proof for congruence.
Shield Your Rear Cos X Rays Tan Your Xterior
Wow, that sucks. Everyone is talking about how they had so much fun learning about this. We didn't. We just learned it...
I read "Pocahontas" at first ...
My physics teacher will take off 10% of your grade if you write said word on your paper. I voted it down because then there would be proof of me using it.
Oh, and it's kind of like counting on your fingers, it's okay when you first learn addition/trig, but after a while just memorize it so you don't look like an idiot.
We learned Some Old Hippie Caught Another Hippie Tripping On Acid. lmao, and I thought we were the only ones
Some Obese Hamsters Can Adjust Happily To Other Animals :)
in holland it is SosCasToa
what does the s stand for?
saved me in physics
SOH - Sin opposite over hypotenuse
CAH - Cos adjacent over hypotenuse
TOA - Tan opposite over adjacent
I'm proud to remember this.
hey im learning this now!
Some Old Hippie
Caught Another Hippie
Trippin On Acid:)
You learn that freshman year
I learned in school SOHCAHTOA and found it in no way funny...
Definitely failed trig.
This is how my geometry teacher taught it to us:
Once their was an Indian who had to ride on horseback through the forest (I forgot what the reason was, but it's not important.) Unfortunately, he rode too close a tree and hurt his foot, so he had to turn around and go back. When he got back to his tribe, he went to the medicine man to see if he could heal his foot. The medicine man gave him this advice: SOHCAHTOA (Get it? Soak-a-toa-a?)
It was very politically incorrect, but at least I remembered it...
This saved my life. I swear.
Sohcahtoa will be helpful throughout your lifetime, pre- calc and beyond to calculus.
We learned it as some old hippy came around here trippin on acid
Soh(soak), cah, toa(toe)!
That's how I learned it.
Fucking hate geometry...
Now I'm in algebra 2 trig. It's worse.
Haha, my teacher is actually Indian. so there.
I LOVE TRIG
math class is so easy when we do trig omg
Sir Coxer Ticks
SOHCAHTOA will mean nothing to you in Pre-Calculus.
At least not in mine
Okay, I took Pre-Calc, and I have no idea what that is. I feel like a tard.
I'm taking precal right now.. and i think he's talking about the unit circle, with the x as the line on the x-axis, the y as the line on the y-axis, and r being the radius.
It's probably just my teacher
Well, I have math issues too, so it might just be me. Who knows.
@734643 (ryry67dude): We have this in my class but in my head I use SOHCAHTOA
Fucking Calculus almost killed me. I dropped it.
i use that and SOHCAHTOA. it just depends what problem it is. both are helpful.
okay i'm in pre cal and i use SOH CAH TOA at least once a chapter.
It's the exact same thing... Sorry.
yeah, pre-calc has nothing to do with trigonometry. even in regular calculus, you don't really use this unless you're doing stuff with integrals or related rates or something.
Trig sux why would u post this?
Your spelling sucks why would you post this?
