### BIG IDEAS

### UNDERSTANDING THE STANDARD

2016 VDOE Curriculum Framework - T.9 Understanding

· Degrees and radians are units of angle measure.

· A radian is the measure of the central angle that is determined by an arc whose length is the same as the radius of the circle.

· The relationship between the radian measure of an angle and the length of the intercepted arc can be represented by , where*s*is the arc length,

*r*is the length of the radius, and is the measure of the angle.

### ESSENTIALS

·
T.9a_{1}** Convert**
between any angle expressed in radians and degrees without using a graphing
utility.

· T.9a_{2}** Derive** the relationship
between the radian measure of an angle and the length of the intercepted arc.

· T.9a_{3}** Calculate** the length of an
arc in radians.

· T.9a_{4}** Calculate** the area of
sectors in circles.

· T.9b_{1}** Solve** practical problems
involving linear and angular velocity.
