SOH-CAH-TOA

In our lesson we had to learn about SOH-CAH-TOA, this should be used in almost anything maths in Game Design for rotation or movement purposes. There can also be scripts to show this.

SOHCAHTOA

These ratios can be difficult to remember. You might easily get confused and not remember which side goes where. SOHCAHTOA is a mnemonic device helpful for remembering what ratio goes with which function.

  • SOH = Sine is Opposite over Hypotenuse
  • CAH = Cosine is Adjacent over Hypotenuse
  • TOA = Tangent is Opposite over Adjacent

With these properties, you can solve almost any problem related to finding either a side length or angle measure of a right triangle. SohCahToa can ensure that you won’t get them wrong.
