What you did was a great improvement from how we might traditionally dig into trig. Asking students to estimate angles and side lengths… in particular, estimating how big one side is compared to another is helpful too… can they articulate that the opposite side looks like it is 80% (or 0.8 times the length) of the hypotenuse (if a right triangle) for example…
These are all ways for students to sort of get a sense of what they should be coming up with when they do finally use a formula.
