    What's so hard to understand 3 major relationships? Sin, cos, tan? I myself
    can never remember all the mnemonics-what if they can't either? These kids
    can play computer games that'll knock your sock off-can't they recognize a
    few ratios?

    I had learned "Oscar Had A Heap Of Apples" for trig functions sine, cosine
    and tangent as opposite side, adjacent side and hypotenuse, myself in high


    Then one student offered "Some Old Hippy Caught Another Hippie Tripping On
    Acid", which while contrary to our drug use policy at school is very catchy
    for students.


    I tried "Some Obese Heifer Cow Always Had Taken Others Alfalfa" but it
    wasn't nearly as effective.

    What are some mnemonics or memory devices that you use in you math
    classroom? One I came up with for my students is that you have to use the
    Law of Cosines in SASSy triangles to help them remember SAS and SSS is when
    the LOC is necessary.
