### Angles in Standard Position

```Botanical Name
Narcissus 'Trigonometry'
Plant Common Name
Trigonometry Daffodil
The flowers of a Trigonometry Daffodil are of almost geometric
precision with their repeating patterns.
Repeating patterns occur in sound, light, tides, time, and nature.
To analyse these repeating, cyclical patterns, we need to study the
cyclical functions branch of trigonometry.

Coterminal angles are angles in standard position that share the
same terminal arm. They also share the same reference angle.

Terminal arm is in quadrant I
Positive Coterminal Angles
Counterclockwise
50° + (360°)(1) = 410°
50° + (360°)(2) = 770°
Negative Coterminal Angles 50° + (360°)(-1) = -310°
Clockwise
50° + (360°)(-2) = -670°

Coterminal Angles in General Form
By adding or subtracting multiples of one full rotation, you
can write an infinite number of angles that are coterminal
with any given angle.
θ ± (360°)n, where n is any natural number
Why must n be a natural number?
