You need to understand the difference between radians and degrees. Put the
calculator at radians after you hit 1 and then sin. You'll get what VB
says. You were doing 1 degree in the calculator while VB was telling you 1
radian. There are 2*pi ~ 6 radians in a circle where as there are 360
degress in a circle. Hence 1 radian is about 60 degrees.
