Arithmetic Question  using sine with angle in degrees
I want to ask my students to calculate the sine of an angle I give them in degrees. I programmed Brightspace to calculate sin({th}*pi/180) where {th} is the angle in degrees and {th}*pi/180 is converting it to radians for the calculation. However, I get back 0.00 as the answer. I cannot figure out what I have done wrong.

Hi @mkindle ,
Thanks for reaching out to the Brightspace Community with your question. In this case, we recommend creating a support case so that our experts can have a closer look at your use case to help troubleshoot the issue.
If you would like support to do so, please let us know and we are happy to assist🙂

I ended up copying and pasting from another question with the same formula in it that seemed to be working. There was no difference in formula, so I don't know why one worked and one didn't. I'm not sure if there's a support ticket to be had in a situation like that.

Hey @mkindle,
Thanks for sharing more about the resolution found when exploring the formula from another discussion thread. Could I request that you share a link out to the resource you were able to find the formula from?
Appreciate your contribution in the Community and learning from your explorations!

I created the formula myself: sin(({th}*pi)/180) where {th} is the angle in degrees.
