An angle is defined as the amount of rotation between two rays. The point where the rays start is called the vertex. There are two systems for measuring angles in mathematics: degrees and radians. While the degree angle system is often used to introduce concepts in math, the radian system eventually becomes the preferred unit for measuring angles.
A perpendicular angle is equal to a quarter of a full rotation.
An acute angle is defined as an angle smaller than a perpendicular angle.
An obtuse angle is defined as an angle greater than a perpendicular angle.
