Geometric measurement: understand concepts of angle and measure angles.
Grade 4
4.MD.5.
Recognize angles as geometric shapes that are formed wherever two rays share a common endpoint, and understand concepts of angle measurement:
a. 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.
b. An angle that turns through n onedegree angles is said to have an angle measure of n degrees.
4.MD.6.
Measure angles in wholenumber degrees using a protractor. Sketch angles of specified measure.
4.MD.7.
Recognize angle measure as additive. When an angle is decomposed into nonoverlapping parts, the angle measure of the whole is the sum of the angle measures of the parts. Solve addition and subtraction problems to find unknown angles on a diagram in real world and mathematical problems, e.g., by using an equation with a symbol for the unknown angle measure.
