• Measure of an angle is determined by the amount of rotation from the initial side to the terminal side.
• Many mathematical calculations in Geometry use degrees to measure and calculate angles.
• Degree measures are used in many practical applications in building and architecture that use

A radian is the measure of a central angle q  that intercepts an arc ‘s‘ equal in length to the radius ‘r‘ of the circle.

✓  Radian is the measure of an angle that, when drawn as a central angle of a circle, intercepts an arc whose length is equal to the length of the radius of the circle.

✓  Radian measure for a full circle is 2π

✓  In radians, one complete counterclockwise revolution is 2π

✓  Degrees are used to measure direction and angle size

✓  Full circle = 360°.

✓  in degrees, one complete counterclockwise revolution is 360°.

### Example 1

Converting from Degree to Radians = multiply by π/180

Solution: 70 x π/180

= 70 x 3.14/180 (π = 3.14)

Converting from  Radians to Degrees = multiply by 180/π

Solution: 14 × 180/π

= 14 × 180/3.14

= 802.54 degrees

Checkpoint
