My high school math teacher was always trying to tell us that trigonometry had many practical applications and now when one finally arrives, I have no idea where to begin, so I'll have to take a zero on question one, but I have answers for 4, 5, and 6:

4. 1929
5. The UMD Field House
6. Taavo Virkhaus

The cards say... twenty five miles
Edmund Ely
thirty three
