6.4.2 I can name, measure, draw, and classify angles
Vocabulary
angle
vertex
acute angle
right angle
obtuse angle
straight angle
An acute angle measures
greater than 0° and less than
90°.
A right angle measures
exactly 90°.
Reading Math
Right angles are usually marked with a
symbol.
An obtuse angle
measures greater
than 90° and less
than 180°.
A straight angle
measures exactly
180°.
Additional Example 3: Classifying Angles
Classify each angle as acute, right, obtuse, or straight.
A.
The angle measures
less than 90°, so it is an
acute angle.
B.
The angle measures
exactly 90°, so it is a
right angle.
Check It Out: Example 3
Classify each angle as acute, right, obtuse, or straight.
A.
The angle measures
less than 90°, so it is an
acute angle.
B.
The angle measures
exactly 180°, so it is a
straight angle.
