The measure of an angle is a number that
indicates the size and direction of the rotation which
forms the angle.
When the angle is rotated counterclockwise
direction it is given a positive sign; negative, if rotated

The Degree Measure
The Revolution Measure
Since trigonomteric angles involve rotations of the terminal
ray, angles may be measured in terms of the number of rotations or part
of it. One complete rotation is called a revolution.
The Radian Measure
The radian measure is based on the central angle of a
circle, its intercepted arc, and its radius.
The radian measure of a central angle is the number of radius
units in the length of the arc intercepted by the angle.
One radian is the measure of a central angle of a circle that
intercepts an arc whose length is equal to the radius of the circle.
Try this one:
Find the measure of each angle in degrees, radians, and revolutions.
When solving problems, it is not
unusual to work on a solution for some
time only to find out in the end that is
wrong and you have to start all over.
