Update *prefaced by a ear-splitting squeal of ecstacy*

by Janie Jones

I just finished my very last ever Trigonometry assignment.

Whoo-HOO!!

Well, assuming I pass the class that is…  The final is on Monday.

  1. In celebration, I calculated the tangent for .25 degrees and determined the error in feet for the distance of one mile.

    Congratulations.

    How come I had this sudden memory of Maxwell Smart saying: “I missed it by THAT much”?

  2. I don’t think I could calculate the tangent of .25 degrees much less determine whether there was a margin of error the size of Texas. I said I would probably pass the class, I didn’t say I actually understood any of it.

    Maxwell Smart. Geesh. Now that’s a blast from the past. Growing up the neighbor kid was obsessed with Get Smart, but I don’t think I’ve ever seen an entire episode from start to finish.

  3. I have a calculator. I type in .25, hit the tangent button and multiply it by 5280. If I was laying out the centerline for a road, I’d be off 23 feet.

  4. Oh, a calculator. That would be nice. Trig teacher doesn’t allow calculators.
