## Angle Definition:

`An angle is the figure formed by`

two rays meeting at a common

end point called a vertex.

Write an angle using the ∠ symbol

Two rays,

BA and

BC intersect at vertex B to form the angle in the image

## 2 ways to refer to this angle:

∠ ABC

∠ B

## Angle Measurement:

Angles are measured using degrees.

## 6 types of angles:

0° ≤ Acute Angle < 90°

Right Angle measures 90°

90° < Obtuse Angle < 180°

Straight Angle measures 180°

180° < Reflex Angle < 360°

Complete Angle measures 360°

## Positive and Negative Angle Direction

## Positive Angles:

Positive angles go counter-clockwise

See +α in the picture above.

This is the

*opposite* direction that clocks go

## Negative Angles:

Negative angles go counter-clockwise

See -α in the picture above.

This is the

*same* direction that clocks go
