Trigonometry Applications using Right Triangles & Ratios  Game Tips:  This game provides practice with word problems that require the use of Sine, Cosine & Tangent.  Note that for any acute angle 'A' in a right triangle, the primary Trig ratios are sinA=(opposite/hypotenuse), cosA=(adjacent/hypotenuse), and tanA=(opposite/adjacent). Memory Aid = soh,cah,toa .  To find the required side in this game, form a ratio with the required side over the given side, and name the resulting Trig ratio based on the given acute angle.  Since the focus of this game is on choosing the correct Trig ratio for right triangle solutions, the final step of using a calculator to work out a Trig ratio is not included here.  It may take a minute to load the game at dialup speeds.  The game can be played using the mouse by itself or using the keyboard by itself.  If the game doesn't respond to keyboard input, click inside the game area to reset the game's focus.  Adjust the game's speed by pressing the + or  key repeatedly.
