Angles
Standard Position
Coterminal Angles
Reference Angles
Converting from Degrees –
degrees, minutes, seconds (DMS)
Angle-
formed by rotating a ray
Terminal Side Ending position
Initial Side Starting position
Standard Position Initial side on positive x-axis
and the vertex is on the origin
An angle describes the amount and direction of rotation
120°
–210°
Positive Angle- rotates counter-clockwise (CCW)
Negative Angle- rotates clockwise (CW)
Coterminal Angles: Two angles with the same initial
and terminal sides
Find a positive coterminal angle to 20º
20  360  380
Find a negative coterminal angle to 20º 20  360  340 
Types of questions you will be asked:
Identify a) ALL angles coterminal with 45º, then b) find one
positive coterminal angle and one negative coterminal angle.
a) 45º + 360k (where k is any given integer).
b) Some possible answers are 405º, 765º, - 315º, - 675º
Decimal Degrees (DD)
• Decimal degrees are similar to degrees/ minutes/seconds
(DMS) except that minutes and seconds are expressed as
decimal values.
• Decimal degrees make digital storage of coordinates
easier and computations faster.
Converting from DMS to DD
Express 365010as decimal degrees (DD)
To complete the calculation, remember that …
1 degree = 60 minutes
1 minute = 60 seconds
1° = 60 
1  = 60 
3600
So … 1 degree = _________seconds
THEREFORE …
Try this: Converting DMS to DD
degrees
seconds
60º20'40"
minutes
20 minutes.= 0.33333 (20/60)
40 seconds = 0.01111 (40/3600)
60º + 0.33333 + 0.01111=60.34444 DD
Converting from DD to DMS
Express 50.525 in degrees, minutes, seconds
To reverse the process, we multiply by 60 instead.
50º + .525(60) 
50º + 31.5
50º + 31 + .5(60) 
50 degrees, 31 minutes, 30 seconds

So, what exactly is a RADIAN?
Many math problems are more
easily handled when degrees are

Two formulas to know:
1.
Arc Length of a circle: S = rθ (θ in radians)
Example: Given a central angle of 128 degrees, find the length of the intercepted arc
in a circle of radius 5 centimeters. Round to nearest tenth.
S = rθ

Linear & Angular Velocity
Things that turn have both a linear velocity
and an angular velocity.
Things that Turn - Examples
tire on a car or bike
buckets on a waterwheel
teeth on a gear
can on a kitchen cabinet lazy susan
propeller on an airplane
horse on a Merry-Go-Round
fins on a fan or a windmill
earth on its axis
Linear & Angular Velocity - Examples
film on a projector or tape on a videotape
turntable in a microwave oven
Earth around the sun
seat on a Ferris wheel
rope around a pulley
a record on an old record player
drum/barrel in a clothes dryer
Things that Turn - Examples
hands on a clock
roller brush on a vacuum cleaner
motor crankshaft
roller skate wheels
Carnival rides: tilt-a-whirl, scrambler, etc.
weather vane washing machine agitator
Angular Velocity
Definition:
Angular Velocity (ω): the speed
at which an angle opens.
