 Students will recognize and apply the sine & cosine ratios where applicable.  Why? So you can find distances, as seen in EX 39.  Mastery is 80% or better on 5-minute checks and practice problems.

 Let ∆ABC be a right triangle. The since, the cosine, and the tangent of the acute angle  A are defined as follows. sin A = Side opposite A hypotenuse = a c cos A = Side adjacent to A hypotenuse = b c tan A = Side opposite A Side adjacent to A = a b

 When looking for missing lengths & angle measures what is the determining factor in deciding to use Sin, Cos & Tan?  How do you know which on to use?
