When I try to verify equations, I find that trigonometric/circular functions such as

For example, using GameSalad:

cos(137) = 0.73

sin(282) = 0.98

Using a calculator, I get these results:

cos(137) = 0.33

sin(282) = -0.68

What am I missing here? Can someone verify these answer?

Should I be using

(It's probably something simple that I overlooked.)

**cos**and**sin**seem a bit wonky.For example, using GameSalad:

cos(137) = 0.73

sin(282) = 0.98

cos(137) = 0.33

sin(282) = -0.68

Should I be using

**angle**-type numbers instead of**integers**?(It's probably something simple that I overlooked.)
