Unit

Description:

In geometry, sine, cosine, and tangent are thought of as the value of ratios of triangles, not as functions.  No attempt is made to describe the trigonometric ratios as functions of the real number line.  Therefore, the notation is just an abbreviation for the “sine of an angle” ( ) or “sine of an angle measure” ( ).  Parentheses are used more for grouping and clarity reasons than as symbols used to represent a function.
