AK.4.MD. Measurement and Data
Geometric measurement: understand concepts of angle and measure angles.
4.MD.7. Recognize angles as geometric shapes that are formed wherever two rays share a common endpoint, and understand the following concepts of angle measurement:
4.MD.7.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 “one-degree angle,” and can be used to measure angles.
4.MD.7.b. An angle that turns through n one-degree angles is said to have an angle measure of n degrees.
4.MD.8. Measure and draw angles in whole-number degrees using a protractor. Estimate and sketch angles of specified measure.
Draw and identify lines and angles, and classify shapes by properties of their lines and angles.
4.G.1. Draw points, lines, line segments, rays, angles (right, acute, obtuse), and perpendicular, parallel, and intersecting line segments. Identify these in two-dimensional (plane) figures.
