Unformatted text preview: Math 16b Thomas Scanlon Autumn 2010 Thomas Scanlon Math 16b Angle measurements From geometry, we are used to measuring angles between two rays. Figure: ∠ BAC Thomas Scanlon Math 16b Straight angle If the rays are collinear but distinct, then we have a straight angle whose measure is by de nition 180 ◦ . Figure: m ∠ BAC = 180 ◦ Thomas Scanlon Math 16b Right angle If the rays are perpendicular, then we have a right angle which is half of a straight angle, and hence has a measure of 90 ◦ . Figure: m ∠ BAC = 90 ◦ Thomas Scanlon Math 16b Acute and obtuse angles An acute angle has a measure between 0 ◦ and 90 ◦ An obtuse angle has a measure between 90 ◦ and 180 ◦ . Figure: m ∠ BAC > 90 ◦ Thomas Scanlon Math 16b Zero degrees The angle between a ray and itself is ◦ . Figure: m ∠ BAC = ◦ Thomas Scanlon Math 16b Negative angles? If an angle of 0 ◦ is meaningful, what might we mean by an angle measure of less than zero? We will de ne the angle measurement from one ray to another (sharing a base point) in the counterclockwise direction to be positive and the angle measurement for the same rays but taken in the clockwise direction to be additive inverse of the rst measure....

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

Kiran Temple University Fox School of Business ‘17, Course Hero Intern

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

Dana University of Pennsylvania ‘17, Course Hero Intern

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
