Q: sohcahtoa rhyme
A: Sin Sin Cos Cos Tan Tan… oh gee, I really can’t remember it anymore. But I also think it’s probably a little racist (in the way that camp songs from the 1950s were racist against Native Americans) and best not remembered. It’s not like it was particularly helpful anyway. I always remember that sin is on top and opposite is on top and tan doesn’t use the hypotenuse, so sin is opp/hyp, cos is what’s left which is adj/hyp, and then tan is opp/(what’s left) adj. Then it’s easy to remember that Tan = sin/cos, later when you start hardcore trig. In terms of the sum and difference formulas, nobody remembers those and I hope you get a cheat sheet on your exam. For the 360 degree thing, I like the handy menomic device: All Students Take Calculus. All are positive in the first quadrant, Sin is positive in the second, Tan is positive in the third, and Cos is positive in the fourth. (Thank you to my ex-boyfriend who taught me that, along with a horrible misogynist rhyme for remembering the colors of resistors, which is something I will likely never need to know.)
Q: comparison between investing in tiaa cref adn edward jones
A: STAY AWAY FROM EDWARD JONES!!!! TIAA CREF is actually pretty good in terms of having your best interests at heart. They’re not quite Vanguard, but they’re not particularly evil. Definitely TIAA CREF. They’re relatively low fee. Edward Jones is extremely high fee. TIAA CREF won’t push you into funds just because they line their pockets. Edward Jones will.
