We are learning the trig stuff now with Sine Cosine and Tangent, its not a very complicated topic, but it can get tricky with some long problems. I actually used trig to make my Compass example Alice program if you want to see that.

Check out my best projects so far and please comment:

It will get alot trickier, have you learned all 45 equations yet for the use of trig? i think it is 45..i can't remember right now. but yeah, once you get to calculus you use trig alot more, so helpful tip, make sure you get trig nailed down as soon as you can lol

If you are stuck on a project, check out the tutorials I made here at this link:
