Recall what it means for an angle to be drawn in standard position.

**The applet below helps illustrate the difference between****angles with positive measure (positive orientation)****versus****angles with negative measure (negative orientation)****.**Interact with the applet for a couple of minutes. Then answer the questions that follow.## 1.

**How can you tell if an angle (drawn in standard position within the coordinate plane) has a positive measure (positive orientation)? Explain. **

## 2.

**How can you tell if an angle (drawn in standard position within the coordinate plane) has a negative measure (negative orientation)? Explain. **
