The axes of a two-dimensional Cartesian system divide the plane into four infinite regions , called quadrants , each bounded by two half-axes. When the axes are drawn according to the mathematical custom, the numbering goes counter-clockwise starting from the upper right "northeast" quadrant. In the above graphic, the words in quotation marks are a mnemonic for remembering which three trigonometric functions sine, cosine and tangent are positive in each quadrant. The expression reads "All Science Teachers Crazy" and proceeding counterclockwise from the upper right quadrant, we see that "All" functions are positive in quadrant I, "Science" for sine is positive in quadrant II, "Teachers" for tangent is positive in quadrant III, and "Crazy" for cosine is positive in quadrant IV.
