What do you think of when you heard the word "angle"?

Some people may say 'a corner' like the one on your table. However, it doesn’t have to be a corner as we will demonstrate later.

An angle is a MEASUREMENT. It is something that we measure.

For example, if you place a cardboard box on a table, the angle that the box and table make is called a RIGHT ANGLE or a Quarter Turn.
