## nonstandard terminology

As far as I know, the term "calculator trigonometric functions" is not used by anyone who has never worked on math with me on a regular basis at some point in time. Thus, I have never seen the term in a textbook. I hope that everyone is okay with this, however, since it is helpful for using the newest mnemonic device that I have added.
