You did fantastic yesterday. Today we are going to take the next step in learning about angles.

First lets just recap what we learnt yesterday.

Look again at the image below to remind you of the name of the angles.

In your books write down the name of each of the angles in the following picture.

Now today we are going to look at naming angles by looking at the number of degrees in an angle.

We can still use the top image to help us with this but the guide below sums up how we would do this.

If an angle is between 0º and 89º it is called an Acute Angle

If an angle is exactly 90º it is called a Right Angle

If an angle is between 91º and 179º it is called an Obtuse Angle

If an angle is exactly 180º it is called a Straight Angle

If an angle is between 181º and 359º it is called an Reflex Angle

If an angle is exactly 360º it is called a Full Angle

Using the guide above write down the name of each of the following angles.

1.   124º
2.   49º
3.   360º
4.   78º
5.   232º
6.   174º
7.   90º
8.   95º
9.   180º
10.   265º

Home learners please could you take a photo of your answered questions and email it to Mr Hindman on Purple Mash.
