Using your “Degrees and Radians” handout
from Friday, describe how you convert
between degrees and radians.

Another way of measuring angles
Convenient because major measurements of a
circle (circumference, area, etc.) are involve pi
Radians result in easier numbers to use

You may need to add or subtract 2 pi more than
once!!!
Trick: Add or subtract the coefficients of pi
rather than the entire radian measure
