# Know that the angles in a full turn sum to 360 degrees and use this to solve problems

I can recall that angles in a full turn sum to 360 degrees and use this to solve problems.

## Lesson details

### Key learning points

- There are 360 degrees in a full turn.
- Use mental or written strategies to calculate with angles up to 360 degrees.

### Common misconception

The largest angle that can be created is a 360 degree angle or one full turn.

Explore examples in everyday life where rotations are greater than one full turn. Discuss how multiples of 180 degrees or 360 degrees are often used to describe movements in sports and other contexts.

### Keywords

Turn - To turn means to rotate about a point.

Degrees - A degree is a unit of measure for angles.
