# Unit Circle Chart Degrees

This figure illustrates the unit circle chart measured in degrees. The unit circle chart is a collection of special angles and their corresonding points on a circle of radius . The chart is a combination of two groups of special angles. 1) The angles formed from dividing the circle into equal parts as shown in this figure. 2) The angles formed from dividing the circle into equal parts as shown in this figure.

See the unit circle chart (radians) for the same chart measured in radians.

The unit circle chart shows the position of the points along the circle that are formed by dividing the circle into eight and twelve parts.

Degrees are a unit of measure for angles. A full rotation is equal to 360 degrees. In the XY Cartesian Coordinate System, degrees are measured starting from the rightmost edge of the circle.

This figure illustrates the unit circle chart divided into eight equal parts measured in degrees.

This figure illustrates the unit circle chart divided into twelve equal parts measured in degrees.

The unit circle chart shows the positions of the points along the unit circle that are formed by dividing the circle into eight and twelve parts respectively. This figure is measured using the radian angle system and annotated with the circle constant tau.
