An angle (∠) is made up of a vertex (a point), two arms (rays), and an arc. They are arranged so that the endpoint of the arms are the same as the vertex, and the arc runs from one arm to another. The size of an angle depends on how big the arms are opened, and they are measured in degrees. You can measure them by putting your protractor on the vertex and looking at the degrees your second arm has reached.

An angle that is less than 90° is known as an acute angle. A 90° angle is known as a right angle. Those between 90° and 180° are obtuse angles. Exactly 180° angles are called straight angles. Those between 180° and 360° are reflex angles, while angles at 360° are round angles

However, sometimes there are no angles on that vertex, and we can omit the point on the arms. In fact, when we are lazy, we can even use a lowercase letter to represent a certain angle. Note that in this case, ∠ must be omitted. Although the lowercase letter represents the value of the angle, all of these names can be used as unknowns in equations.

"This highly entertaining book will broaden the reader's historical perspective in an enlightening manner and it provides attractive topics for classroom discussion." -Hendrik Lenstra, Universiteit Leiden

"This small book includes Ceva’s and Menelaus’s theorems, the nine-point circle and Euler line, configuration theorems, Morley’s triangle, inequalities for elements in a triangle … . The arguments are not only geometric or trigonometric ones but also different coordinate systems are considered such as barycentric or trilinear coordinates in relation to a given triangle. … The book is very useful for teachers and teacher students who want to be inspired by the results of elementary geometry." (Herbert Hotje, Zentralblatt MATH, Vol. 1159, 2009)

Geometry (from the Ancient Greek : γεωμετρία ; * geo- * "earth", * -metron * "measurement") is a branch of mathematics concerned with questions of shape, size, relative position of figures, and the properties of space. A mathematician who works in the field of geometry is called a geometer .

While geometry has evolved significantly throughout the years, there are some general concepts that are more or less fundamental to geometry. These include the concepts of points, lines, planes, surfaces, angles, and curves, as well as the more advanced notions of manifolds and topology or metric. [6]

Geometry has applications to many fields, including art, architecture, physics, as well as to other branches of mathematics.

The Journal of Classical Geometry is a refereed electronic journal devoted to problems of classical Euclidean geometry. It is addressed for school teachers, advanced high-school students, and everyone with an interest in classical geometry. The journal values synthetic arguments, intelligibility and illustration.

The journal focuses on new results in triangle geometry, geometry of conics, non-Euclidean and elementary combinatorial geometry. New synthetic proofs for known facts and interesting unsolved problems are also welcome.
