Verbal
1) Draw an angle in standard position. Label the vertex, initial side, and terminal side.
 Answer
2) Explain why there are an infinite number of angles that are coterminal to a certain angle.
3) State what a positive or negative angle signifies, and explain how to draw each.
 Answer

Whether the angle is positive or negative determines the direction. A positive angle is drawn in the counterclockwise direction, and a negative angle is drawn in the clockwise direction.
4) How does radian measure of an angle compare to the degree measure? Include an explanation of \(1\) radian in your paragraph.
5) Explain the differences between linear speed and angular speed when describing motion along a circular path.
 Answer

Linear speed is a measurement found by calculating distance of an arc compared to time. Angular speed is a measurement found by calculating the angle of an arc compared to time.
