Subject: Remembering Trig Ratios

I had a student tell me this one once. It's the same concept as SOH-CAH-TOA, only much more unusual. Old Some ------- Hen Another Caught --------- Hen Oats Taking ---------- Away I have found that it is somewhat easier to remember and apply because of its absurdity. I simply refer to it as a "Barnyard Catastrophe" and the students chuckle to themselves and move on.
