    Salient values of trigonometric functions

    I noticed this pattern in the early 1990s but learned that I am far from being the first to have done so (Jean-Luc Eveno heard this some 20 years earlier from a teacher and surmises that it has been teachers' lore for generations before):
    \(x\) in degrees:\(0^\circ\)\(30^\circ\)\(45^\circ\)\(60^\circ\)\(90^\circ\)
    \(x\) in radians:\(0\)\(\displaystyle\frac\pi6\)\(\displaystyle\frac\pi4\)\(\displaystyle\frac\pi3\)\(\displaystyle\frac\pi2\)
    If you have seen this published anywhere I'd be interested in knowing.
