 An angle is measured with reference to a circle with its center at the common endpoint of the rays, by considering the fraction of the circular arc between the points where the two rays intersect the circle. An angle that turns through 1/360 of a circle is called a “onedegree angle,” and can be used to measure angles.
 An angle that turns through n onedegree angles is said to have an angle measure of n degrees.
Clusters should not be sorted from Major to Supporting and then taught in that order. To do so would strip the coherence of the mathematical ideas and miss the opportunity to enhance the major work of the grade with the supporting clusters.

Students are asked to circle figures that show angles from a set of figures and then describe the defining attributes of angles.
Students are asked to analyze two angles and explain how their measures are determined.
Students are asked determine angle measures based on how many onedegree turns are made.
Students are given two angles with the same angle measure but with sides of different lengths and asked to explain which component of an angle determines its measure.
