- 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.
- An angle that turns through n one-degree angles is said to have an angle measure of n degrees.
Compare and contrast the major stages in the life cycles of Florida plants and animals, such as those that undergo incomplete and complete metamorphosis, and flowering and nonflowering seed-bearing plants.

Learning Targets and Learning Criteria |

Explain the relationship between a circle and the number of degrees in an angle (e., an angle is measured in reference to a circle—its center is the endpoint for each of the rays that make up the angle). Explain an angle as a series of “one-degree turns” and the total number of “one-degree turns” is the measure of the angle in degrees. E.g., A water sprinkler rotates one-degree at each interval. If the sprinkler rotates a total of 100 one-degree turns, what is the measure of the sprinkler’s rotation in degrees? Explain that since it takes 360 “one-degree turns” to rotate through a circle, 1/360 of a circle is a “one-degree angle”. Measure an angle to the nearest whole number degrees using a protractor. Draw points, lines, line segments, rays, right angles (exactly 90 degrees), acute angles (less than 90 degrees), obtuse angles (greater than 90 degrees and less than 180 degrees).
Review that all living things have a life cycle. Review the ways plants can reproduce: flowering and non-flowering with cones and spores Explore life cycles of various plants found in Florida (g., orange tree, pine tree, hibiscus). Diagram the major stages in the life cycles of plants. Compare the major stages in the life cycles of Florida plants, both flowering and nonflowering seed-bearing plants (g., daisies and pine trees).
