Exploration of Sine, Cosine and Tangent

Exploration of the half-chord of an angle, half-chord of the complement and the length of the tangent created with a goal of finding the ratio that allows you to calculate the Tangent value. This simple applet is designed to allow students to generate a table of values that allows the students to make a conjecture about what that ratio should be.
