• An angle consists of two
different rays (sides)
that share a common
endpoint (vertex).
• Angle ABC, ABC,
CBA or B
• The vertex is the key

How Big is an Angle?
Is the angle between
the two hands of the
wristwatch smaller
than the angle
between the hands of
the large clock?
Measure of an Angle
The measure of an angle is
the smallest amount of
from one side to the other,
measured in degrees.
• Can be any value between
0 and 180
• Measured with a protractor
Classifying Angles
Surely you are familiar with all of my angular
friends by now.
How To Use a Protractor

see how to measure
an angle.
The measure of this
angle is written:
mABC  34

measure of the
angle, where
mDOG + mGOZ
= mDOZ.

If P is in the interior of RST, then
mRST = mRSP + mPST.
Example 4
Given that mLKN = 145°,
find mLKM and
mMKN.
Set up an equation
and solve
X = 23
<LKM = 56
<MKN = 89
CHECK: 56 + 89 = 145

Congruent Angles
• Two angles are congruent angles if
they have the same measure.
Congruent Angles
Draw angle A in your notebook. How could
you copy that angle to another part of your
paper using only a
compass and a
straightedge?
Congruent Angles
1. Draw angle A.
Congruent Angles
2. Draw a ray with endpoint A’.
Congruent Angles
3. Put point of compass on A and draw an
arc that intersects both sides of the angle.
Label these points
B and C.
Congruent Angles
4. Put point of compass on A’ and use the
compass setting from Step 3 to draw a
similar arc on the ray.
Label point B’ where
the arc intersects
the ray.
Congruent Angles
5. Put point of compass on B and pencil on
C. Make a small arc.
Congruent Angles
6. Put point of compass on B’ and use the
compass setting from Step 5 to draw an
arc that intersects the
arc from Step 4.
Label the
new point
C’.

7. Draw ray A’C’.

Angle Bisector
An angle bisector is a
ray that divides an
angle into two
congruent angles.
Bisect an Angle
1. Draw an acute angle and label the vertex
A.
Bisect an Angle
2. Using vertex A as the center, draw an arc
intersecting both sides of your angle. Label the
intersections B and C.
Bisect an Angle
3. Using the same compass setting, draw two
intersecting arcs in the interior of your angle,
one centered at B, the other centered at C.
Bisect an Angle
4. Label the intersection D.

5. Draw a ray from vertex A through point D.

Example 6
In the diagram, OE bisects angle LON. Find the
value of x and the measure of each angle.
Set up and equation and solve.
X=3
Both angles are 38
You can also measure an angle in radians.
Radians are like the less well-known
greasy, nerdy-type who eats lots of pie.
One radian is the measure of the angle
formed by stretching the radius of a circle
around its circumference.
Example 7
How many radians would be the equivalent
to one full revolution around the unit circle?
How many radians would equal 180°?
Example 8
Use the conversion factor 180° =  radians
to convert the following angle measures.
