# Unit 5 Section 1 : Angles and Turns

In this unit you will learn what terms such as turn, half turn, etc. mean in terms of angles. You will also learn how to refer to points of the compass and how these relate to angles.

There are 360° in one complete turn, so the following are true:

You also need to refer to compass points: (north (N), south (S), east (E), west (W), northeast (NE), southeast (SE), southwest (SW) and northwest (NW). Look at the diagram below:

## Example Question

Look at the diagram below which shows two turns.
