Trig mnemonic for:

Sine = Opposite/Hypotenuse

Cosine = Adjacent/Hypotenuse

Tangent = Opposite/Adjacent

Problem is, who can remeber how to spell this supposed Indian Princess name? Much better mnemonic is Sally Can Tell (sine/cosine/tangent in the vertical column) Oscar/Has, A/Hard, On/Always (opposite/hypotenuse, adjacent/hypotenuse/, opposite/adjacent, also vertically).

Socohtoa, Socahtohoa, Socotoah, Sohcahtoa, ??? Might as well remember the whole order of functions...
