Examples, solutions, videos, worksheets, stories, and songs to help Grade 6 students learn how to name angles.
The following diagram shows three ways that can be used to name angles. Scroll down the page for more examples and solutions on naming angles.
When an angle is presented with three labeled points,
the angle would be named using the angle symbol ∠ and the three
points written with the vertex in the middle.
The following angle could be correctly named ∠LMN or ∠NML, because in
each case the vertex point is in the middle of the name.
Writing the points in alphabetical order
is not a requirement and will not necessarily
be correct in all cases, depending on the letter
name of the vertex. The following angle could be named ∠BAC or ∠CAB.
Writing the points in alphabetical order (∠ABC) in
this case would be incorrect, as the vertex would not
be in the middle.
