Why won't you learn your trig stuff?

A frustrated maths teacher started this thread in the Student Room UK forums which IMHO deserves a little attention because it is rather reflective of the situation in Singapore classrooms too:

Peace.

Re: Why won't you learn your trig stuff?

Till date, 7 years since I started learning those trigo identities and standard trigo ratios (for common angles), I still can't remember them even though I'm still using them regularly. I rely on my list of identities and I know which to use in questions, but I just can't remember them.

Little things like these make all the difference between gods and ordinary peons.

Am not surprised you belong to the latter category.

The students are right on this one, tediously memorizing trig ratios isn't all that useful no matter what field you go into (besides a math teacher).
