    Hello I am new here and I just need to know for my math homework what are some occupations that require using Sine and Cosine on a daily basis. Any help would be appreciated.

    Is a mathematician too obvious of a choice?

    What about surveyors? The guys who set up those little telescopes and wear orange vests and take lots of notes. Lots of geometry involved there.

    Oh, that's just terrible! :tongue:

    Yes, definitely engineers and mathematicians. Add to that machinists, carpenters, physicsists, and surveyors.

    I know a guy who was a tool and die maker and he informed me he was knowledgable in sins and cosins.
