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.
