# Definition of Degree (Angles)

Degrees are one possible way of measuring angles.

We use the symbol ${}^\circ$ for degrees.

There are $360^\circ$ in a full rotation.

A straight angle has $180^\circ$, and a right angle is $90^\circ$.

We can use a protractor like the one in the picture to measure angles in degrees.
